add new service or platform

How do we add a new Platform or Service to the lists/templates?

Or is this impossible?

We wish to create a new Service named "EMC SAN Service" and create a template for it. We cannot find any documentation on this.

Please advise!!

Hi,

you need to create and deploy a new plugin which describes properties and metrics of you new service. So what kind of Service is "EMC SAN Service" ?
Is it a daemon ? If so please read:

So, if we create a new plugin for the "EMC SAN" will it appear as "EMC SAN" on the dashboard "availability summary"?? Or will it say "Script Plugin" on the dashboard "availability summary"?

If you create a plugin for EMC SAN that has your own type name for the
server/services, then all resources will display with your own
resource type name, just as "Script" is the name of the service type.
