1. Create a service
Start by importing a service into your Catalog using one of our Discovery integrations, like Git, APM, or Kubernetes. If you're feeling crafty, try putting together your own Cortex Service Descriptor.
2. Add useful metadata
Once you've created a service, add information like links to your Documentation, your own Custom Data, or even start building a tagging system!
3. Set up Integrations
Cortex provides useful functionality by aggregating information about all of your services and connecting with numerous third party providers, like PagerDuty for on-call details or Datadog for APM dashboards.
