Configure SLIs

To tell the dynatrace-service how to acquire the values of an SLI, the correct query needs to be configured. This is done by adding an SLI configuration to a project, stage, or service using the add-resource command. The resource identifier must be dynatrace/sli.yaml.

  • In the below example, the SLI configuration as specified in the sli-config-dynatrace.yaml file is added to the service carts in stage hardening from project sockshop.
keptn add-resource --project=sockshop --stage=hardening --service=carts --resource=sli-config-dynatrace.yaml --resourceUri=dynatrace/sli.yaml

Note: The add-resource command can be used to store a configuration on project-, stage-, or service-level. If you store SLI configurations on different levels, see Add SLI configuration to a Service, Stage, or Project to learn which configuration overrides the others based on an example.

Example for custom SLIs:

If you want to add your custom SLIs, take a look at the following example, which can be used as a template for your SLIs:
