Add additional metadata to your services.
Services have the ability to have pieces of custom metadata attached to them. There are many reasons you may want to do this. For example:
- Providing a link between your configure8 service and what that service may be referred to in some other platform or tool
- Adding custom information you currently track internally in spreadsheets or other non-programmatic documentation
To add metadata, start on a service's detail page and select Actions -> Edit
In the Metadata section, you can select + Add Metadata to add additional metadata to the service.
You can select the type of Metadata to add. Supported types are text, Link (URL), JSON, and code. Once you select the type, enter the metadata's name. Think of this as the Key for the metadata. Now enter the value which can be text, a link (URL), a JSON blob, or code.
You can add as much metadata as you'd like. When finished, click Done in the bottom of the dialog and your metadata is saved.
You can delete metadata similarly by opening the dialog and clicking the trash can next to any metadata value you want to delete.
Once you've added metadata to your service, this data is available in the right rail of the service detail page in the Metadata section.
