Ability to apply folder structure in application perspectives Merged

In our setup we are monitoring performance of each deployed app. This can lead to 1000s of APs which will completely flood the current application perspective overview. The idea we suggest is to have the ability to apply a folder structure in which we can have a high level folder "markets" and then below all separate markets. This could also be beneficial for RBAC.

    When we discussed last time, we did consider adding tags to an AP for filtering & grouping. This will help with organisation in the UI and also address (groups of) APs from the API.

    Hi Henning,

    The APs are not a single 1:1 service mapping. And we are aware of the Services view.

    This Idea concerns bringing structure to the thousands of APs that we will have on the system, and the ability to provide an overview of all those APs.

    I have a question regarding the following:

    we are monitoring performance of each deployed app

    Does a single app consist of multiple deployment unjits (services) or is this a 1:1 mapping from a single service to an Application perspective? In case it's the later, we have the Services view, which gets populated automatically. Can you explain why this is insufficient?

    Thanks a lot!
