Service Dependency Mapping
Service dependency mapping determines the services on which each given service relies.Synonyms: Distributed Tracing .
How it works
The organization collects and models architectural information about the services and consumers of services and maps the dependencies between the services.
- Architectural design artifacts and SMEs may need to be consulted to determine if dependencies are intended or otherwise essential.
- Service dependencies for critical systems--those supporting critical organizational activities--should be prioritized for supply chain risk analysis.
- Service dependencies in cloud or microservice architectures may be discovered using distributed tracing capabilities
