New Optional Fields in Create Service API

 

Improvement

  

We introduced two new optional fields: tags and maintainer.

You can use them in the following ways:

  1. tags: Add more context to your services using tags like Type, Impact, Environment.
  2. maintainer: Add a Service Owner to drive the concept of ownership across your organization.

Improved Service Catalog

 

Improvement

  

Thanks to your incredible user feedback, we’ve revamped our Service Catalog! The redesign provides a consolidated summary of all active services in a single dashboard.

The new Service Catalog includes the ability to:

  1. View your service health based on open incidents
  2. Assign owners to a service to drive the concept of better ownership
  3. Classify services based on Tags to improve context
  4. Service specific health metrics such as open incidents, MTTA, MTTR, Alert Noise reduction and more
