If you want more than two monitoring steps, click the "Add Step" button at the end of the step configuration step.
After configuring the steps, if you wish, you can configure the opening of an automatic incident. Select the severity of the incident, the check interval time in Check Interval in seconds (greater than or equal to twice what was configured in monitoring) to close and open incidents, and the number of failures and hits to also open and close an incident.
After configuring the incident, choose which team will be notified and enable the “Enable to set up automatic incidents opening” switch to be notified when there is an incident.
After all these configurations, click on “Create monitoring” to create synthetic monitoring.
