Step 2: Create a service
Services in Nobl9 are organized under projects. A service can represent a logical service endpoint like an internal or external API, a database, or anything else you care about setting an SLO for, such as a user journey. Put differently, a service in the Nobl9 platform is something that you want to test for reliability.
A service may also include other services. For example, in a service desk application, one service might create a new ticket. That service might rely on a user service, a queue, a notification service, and a database service, all of which could be defined as additional services in Nobl9.
sloctlto move SLOs to another service as long as they belong to the same project.
