Service types can be setup in the system immediately, there are no prerequisite configuration steps.
The Service Types panel on the left of this screen allows you to select existing service types to view and edit on the Edit Service Type Panel to the right. Actions are also available which are shown as icons on the left above the Filter text box. Available actions are detailed below.
