Docs » 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 SignalFx, 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 SignalFx 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.

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 Creating and managing teams.
