Using SREnity Effectively
SREnity is designed to connect to each and every piece of your development and operations tooling to pull useful insights from every corner of environment. In general, the rule of thumb here is that the more connections you make by integrating systems you use with SREnity, the more valuable and meaninful the data and insights it provides will be.
- Where possible, ensure that API keys used for SREnity integration only have read-only access to your systems.
- Integrate every tool in your environment - from source code management to production monitoring. SREnity needs a complete picture of your environment to effectively audit. If the integration for your tool does not yet exist - let us know! (email@example.com)
We offer a variety of integrations (see our architecture documentation) that cover the various aspects of your DevOps toolchain. Every category of integration has an important place in ensuring the robustness and stability of your environment. If you do not have tooling currently set up for one of the categories - you should consider adding it to ensure you have more thorough cover and protection for potential issues.

Audit and Environment Review
SREnity is an excellent tool for automated environment audits and ensuring compliance with best practices.

Review your dashboard regularly to ensure that things are still running as expected.
