Simon User Guide

New/Edit Service Window

The New Service and Edit Service windows. This window is typically accessed via the Services window when the File > New Service... or File > Edit Service... menu commands or the corresponding toolbar buttons are chosen.

This window is divided into four sections. Below is a brief description of each; click on the section name or "tell me more" link for more information about each:

Name: The top section only includes a field where you can name this service. Enter any name that has meaning for you; it is used for display only.

Service Kind: Choose the service plug-in from this pop-up menu. Simon uses plug-ins to provide the actual checking functionality, allowing greater flexibility and expandability. When you choose a service kind from this menu, the fields below change accordingly. [Tell me more....]

Automatically Pause Service: This feature allows you to suspend checking all tests that use this kind of service on specified days (or any day) and times. Normally you'd probably want to auto-pause a test instead, but this is a quick way to pause a kind of service for many tests. [Tell me more....]
