How to implement my sla


I need your help to achieve a SLA implementation. First of all, i do not have "resolution time" but more "providing recommandation".

So I create a first SLA metric on which i put :



Begin counting time when

Issue Created

Pause on (Optional)

Time is not counted during



Finish counting time when

Assignee: Changed

priority = high --> 4h --> MyCalendar

priority = Medium --> 4h --> MyCalendar

priority = Low --> 8h --> MyCalendar


==> This is my first objective : mesuring the time from the issue is created until someone is taking into account the customer request


Then I need to put a second objective : Once my issue has been assign to a ServiceDesk Agent, I need to provide to my customer an answer about its question/issue with 4h for urgent, 8h for medium and 12h for low

So my SLA is about providing someone taking into account the issue + giving them a recommandation to solve the issue

I'm a bit lost for the second part

Thanks for your help

Hi @Vergeres Julien,

Hopefully, I understand what you are hoping for here:

  • you have one SLA for tracking issue triaging (issue creation > assignment of issue)
  • you would like to have another SLA to track provided recommendations (issue creation > recommendation provided)

Do correct me if I'm wrong here. smile

For the first SLA, you got the configuration spot-on.

The second one (although tricky) is quite simply, the following:

- Issue Created

Pause on

- Entered status: Waiting for Customer


The key area is the Stop condition for the 2nd SLA. What I've mapped in my example above is following the default Service Desk Workflow. Review your workflow, and find out on which status you deem that a recommendation has been provided.

From what I understand, it could mean Waiting for Customerwink
