Or just click the “+Add new” button to start the creation of a new SLA configuration.

 

Select what type of SLA Goal you want to use for the new SLA config. It can be based on a time limit or a negotiated date (read more here).

Then you can configure other parameters for the new SLA config:

  1. Name

  2. Project

  3. Calendar

  4. Start/Pause/Stop conditions

  5. SLA Reset

  6. Multi-Cycle option

  7. SLA Goals settings with automated actions

Pay attention that Pause condition, First/Multi-cycle options and SLA Reset are disabled for SLA configs with the negotiated date.

 

At Start/Stop/Pause conditions, you can choose standard and custom issue fields, which are used by your team for each project.

Further, you can add conditions for SLA Reset and select the Multi-Cycle option to get the cumulative sum of all cycles' duration between origin and end statuses. 

At the SLA goals setting menu you can specify SLA goals (time limit or negotiated date) and choose the Automate action for exceeded issues:

  • notification

  • changing reporter

  • changing priority

  • changing status

You can choose an option to notify users separately or/and a group of users in comments about exceeded issues. If you have many users, use the Search field.

After setting, you need to save all configurations.

Also, on the left side menu, you can see a list of SLAs and Work schedules, configured before. You can add the new ones, copy or delete them. Read more about setting the Work schedules here.
