A Service Level Agreement (SLA) is a commitment between a service provider and a client. It is also called as Key Performance Indicator (KPI). 

Create SLA  :


Login   >    Dashboard    >    SLAs/KPIs    >   Create SLA 

 Before creating the SLA alert, the user has to create an SLA for the client with the required processing parameters to model the condition. 

There are two types of SLA
a) File-based SLA
b) Client-based SLA  

Users can Create SLAs/KPIs for the created clients, file patterns and mention the type of SLA’s/KPI’s in two formats  

  1. Percentage.
  2. Duration. 

Below is the detailed description of mandatory fields that are present in the SLA. 


  •  It is a mandatory field 
  • Should select a radio button of Client Based SLA or File Based SLA based on the requirement of SLA 
  • By selecting Client Based SLA configuration it displays the Client name and Client Id whereas Client Name is mandatory field and Client Id is an optional field 
  • By selecting File-Based SLA configuration it displays File Name where it is a mandatory field 

Time Reference:  

  • It is a mandatory field 
  • Should select any time period which is mentioned below 

Last completed period: 

  • It calculates SLA based on the files which are processed in the last completed period
  • It calculates SLA based on the files which are processed in a fixed interval 

For example: From fixed Period to To fixed period 

Type of SLA: 

  • It is a mandatory field 
  • Should select the type of SLA which are mentioned below 


  • In Percentage, Range values should not be in decimals 
  • In Percentage Start Setting percentage range values from the red zone 


  • In Duration Start Setting duration range values from the green zone 

Client Based SLA Creation: 

Users can create client-based or file-based SLA/KPI’s based on the event status percentages. Here the user should provide either range of percentages or durations to raise alerts. 

For example, In the below scenario an SLA named ‘Client Based ACME Percentage SLA’ is created as shown below Figure 1. 

                       Figure 1: Create Client Based SLA’s /KPI’s by percentage 

Successful creation of SLA displays a success message with SLA details.

File-Based SLA Creation: 

Users can create File-based SLA/KPI’s based on the event status time periods. Here the user should provide time durations to raise alerts.

 Successful creation of SLA displays a success message with SLA details as shown below figure 4.

 Manage SLA: 

In Manage SLA, User can search for the SLAs based on the filters that were provided at the time of SLA creation. 


Login  >  Dashboard  >  SLAs/KPIs >  Manage SLA 

User has the privilege to modify the SLA’s/KPI’s for the created client. User has access to perform below actions  

  • Edit 
  • Delete 
  • Graph 
  • Activity

 ‘EDIT’ option is used to edit the SLA details. By clicking on the edit option, the page will be navigated to create page module where we can change details as per requirement. 

‘Update’ button, after making the required changes, the application will update the SLA details as shown in figure 6.
