Rename a service

You may want to rename an existing service to clarify the purpose of the monitor, or provide a more descriptive name. If you plan to update the service to monitor a different URL or application than it did originally, renaming the service makes it clear what the service's new purpose is.

To rename an existing service:

  1. Click on the name of the service you want to rename. You can do this either from the Dashboard or the Services window located on the left-hand side of the Services tab page.
  2. Click on the Settings sub-tab to load the Service Settings menu.
  3. Select the Rename and Edit Description menu option.
  4. Click on the blank text box and enter a new service name, up to 50 characters in length. The name could describe the service itself or the application or system to be tested.
  5. Click the Save Settings button to save your changes.
