Working with Teams 🔗

In the context of monitoring a system, most companies organize users into multiple teams. Each team typically has a general area of responsibility, such as Operations, DevOps, or Infrastructure IT. As a result, each team has a specific focus when it comes to data and content, such as specific metrics related to the service that they monitor or manage, or data from a standard set of metrics, but restricted to a subset of sources.

In the application, organizing users into teams lets you create links between content (dashboard groups and detectors) and teams. Linked content is used to create a team landing page, which lets team members quickly view relevant content on a single page.

Your administrator may add you to one or more teams, but you can also join and leave teams on your own. You don’t need to be a team member to view a team’s landing page, link dashboards and detectors to a team, or send alert notifications to a team.

Administrators can also enable access controls to provide enhanced security.

You can join or leave any team, but only administrators can create teams, delete teams, or add and remove other team members. For more information, see Create and manage teams.
