In order to monitor a web application you need to create a web app group with at least one web path. The web path is a unique combination of Monitoring Point, web application (target), and workflow (which contains a script or HTTP request that interacts with the web application).
The following prerequisites are required to create a web app group:
- You need access to either an Enterprise Monitoring Point or, for browser-based scripting only, a Global Monitoring Point.
- If you haven’t already done so, you need to specify the location of your Enterprise Monitoring Points.
- You need to use supported authentication methods.
Create a web app group
Once your Monitoring Points are deployed you can create web app groups (either browser-based or HTTP request-based) that use them.
Once a web app group is created, the associated Monitoring Point(s) will start executing the workflow(s) against the web app target(s) and sending results back to APM for review.
