Web paths are created during web app group creation. Once a web path is created (containing a monitoring point, a target web app, and a script) the script is run from the monitoring point against the target web app on a periodic basis. Each script execution is a test that generates a variety of information. Basic web path information and results from the latest web test can be found on the Web Paths and Web App Groups pages. More detailed and historical information can be seen by drilling down on a web path. Web paths can also be searched for, filtered, grouped, and sorted on the Web Paths page.

Finding, filtering, grouping, sorting

The Web Paths page provides a number of tools for finding the web paths you are interested in and grouping and sorting them as desired.

Find a web path

Web paths can be searched for using a search string. The search looks at content in the monitoring point, target, web app group, and workflow fields. Searches can be combined with filters to narrow the search.

To find a web path or web paths:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. In the search field, enter the search string.
    • Web paths matching the search string are listed.
    • Click “=” to invert the search.
    • Click “x” to remove the search string.
    • To refine the search, you can add another search string by repeating these steps.

Filter web paths

A filtering mechanism is available to help narrow down a search. Multiple filters can be combined together and with a search string for even further granularity.

To filter web paths:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. Click the search field.
    • The filters appear: Monitoring Point, Target, Web App Group, Workflow, and Status.
  3. Select a filter.
    • Objects matching the filter type are listed.
  4. Select one or more of the filter objects listed.
    • Web paths matching the selected filter objects are listed.
    • Click “=” to invert the filter.
    • Click “x” to remove the filter.
    • To refine what you are filtering, you can add another filter by repeating these steps.

Group web paths

In addition to the Web App Groups page, which allows you to create and configure web paths and group them by web app group, there are two other ways to group web paths depending on your needs. The Web Paths page allows you to group by target, by web app group, or by monitoring point. The Web Dashboard page allows you to select individual web paths to group together.

Group by target, web app group, or monitoring point

Use the Web Paths page to group web paths by target, by web app group, or by monitoring point.

To group web paths using the Web Paths page:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. In the Group by drop-down, select how you’d like the web paths grouped.
    • The web paths are grouped as specified.

Group individual web paths

Use the Web Dashboard page to select individual web paths you’d like to group together.

To create a group of web paths using the Web Dashboard page:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Dashboard.
  2. Click + New Dashboard (or Build your first dashboard if it’s the first one).
  3. Name the dashboard.
  4. Click + Add a Web App Group.
  5. Select a web app group from the Select Web App Group drop-down.
  6. Select a workflow from the Select Workflow drop-down.
    • The group is created.
  7. Click + Add a Web App Group to add more web paths to the group.
  8. Click Done when you are finished adding web paths to the group.

Sort web paths

No matter how they are filtered or grouped on the Web Path page, lists of web paths can be sorted based on data in any of the columns in the list.

To sort a list of web paths:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. If web paths are grouped, expand the group you are interested in so that you can see the web paths.
  3. Click the heading of the column you want to sort by.
    • The web paths are sorted by the column you selected.
  4. Click the heading again to reverse the sort order.

View current web path status

When web path alert profiles are applied to a workflow or to a web path, status icons indicate the current state of the web path. You can view the web path status on either the Web Paths page or the Web App Groups page.

To view the web path status on the Web Paths page:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. Find the web path you are interested in.
    • View the web path status in the leftmost column of the web path.

To view the web path status on the Web App Groups page:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web App Groups.
  2. Select the web app group containing the web path you are interested in.
    • View the web path status in the leftmost column of the web path.

Web path status is indicated as follows:

Icon Status Description
connectivity-lost.svg Connectivity loss The monitoring point has lost connectivity with the target.
violated.svg Error/Violated For web paths that do not have an alert profile applied, this indicates that one or more milestones in the script have received an HTTP status error from the target. For web paths that have an alert profile applied, this indicates that one or more milestones in the script have violated an alert threshold.
muted-violated.svg Error/Violated (muted) Same as above but alerts are muted.
ok.svg OK The monitoring point has connectivity with the target and is able to execute the script. For web paths that do not have an alert profile applied, this indicates that all milestones in the script have received an HTTP 200 status from the target. For web paths that have an alert profile applied, this indicates that no milestones in the script have violated an alert threshold.
muted-ok.svg OK (muted) Same as above but alerts are muted.
failed.svg Failed Either the monitoring point could not be reached, the monitoring point is initializing, or there is no measurement data available.
disabled.svg Disabled Monitoring is disabled or unlicensed.
