Web paths are created during web app group creation. Once web paths are created, there are a number of actions you can perform to locate the ones you are looking for and to manage how they operate.

Search for web paths

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 search for 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.
  3. Select a filter or search for a Custom Tag.
    • Objects matching the filter type are listed.
    • If a search keyword was entered, matching Custom Tags are listed as “Quick Tags”.
  4. Select one or more of the filter objects or Quick Tags listed.
    • Web paths matching the selected 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.

Tag web paths

Use custom tags to to associate web paths that are related in ways that are relevant to your business. For example, you could group web paths by the departments that are using a given app. Also, each web path can be assigned one or more custom tags and the tags can be shared between network paths and web paths.

Up to 64 custom tag categories can be created per organization.

Add a custom tag to a web path

To add a custom tag to one or more web paths:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. Select the web paths you want to add a tag to.
  3. From the Action drop-down, click Assign Tags.
  4. In the Search or add… field, specify the tag you wish to search for or add in the form “<category>:<value>” and press Enter.
    • The tag is assigned to the selected web path(s).
    • The tags column () indicates the number of tags assigned to each web path.
  5. Click Close.

Alternatively, to add a custom tag to a single web path:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. For the web path you want to add a tag to, in the tags column (), click Add Tags or the tag icon () associated with the path (if there are already custom tags assigned).
  3. In the Search or add… field, specify the tag you wish to search for or add in the form “<category>:<value>” and press Enter.
    • The tag is assigned to the web path.
    • The tags column () indicates the number of tags assigned to the web path.
  4. Click Close.

View custom tags assigned to a web path

To view the custom tags assigned to a web path:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. For the web path you want to view, click the tag icon () in the tags column ().
    • Tags assigned to the web path are displayed.
    • If there is no tag icon it means there are no tags assigned to the web path.

View custom tags assigned to web paths by category

To view custom tags assigned to web paths by category:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. In the Columns dropdown, click Tag Categories then select the categories you want to show as columns on the Web Paths page.
    • Custom tags are shown for each web path assigned the selected tag categories.

Filter, group, or sort web paths by custom tag

Custom tags can be used to filter, group, and/or sort web paths.

Remove a custom tag from a web path

To remove a custom tag from one or more web paths:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. Select the web paths you want to remove a tag from.

Sort web paths

No matter how they are filtered, grouped, or tagged 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.

Specify columns of web path information

You can specify up to 9 columns of web path information including path configuration information as well as live path stats. Each column can be used to sort the web paths.

To specify the columns of web path information:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. Click Columns.
  3. Select the columns you want to display.
  4. Click away from the list of columns.
    • The selected columns are displayed.

Disable web path monitoring

If you need to stop monitoring on one or more web paths indefinitely or for a period of time but you do not want to delete them, you can disable monitoring.

To disable monitoring on one or more web paths:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. Select the web paths you want to disable.
  3. From the Action drop-down, click Disable Monitoring.
  4. Specify when monitoring should be automatically re-enabled.

  6. Click OK.
    • Monitoring is disabled on the selected paths for the period you specified.
    • The status icon for the web paths indicates they are disabled.
    • Monitoring on an underlying network path is also disabled unless the network path:
      • is also linked to a web path which has not been disabled
      • was originally created directly as a network path (i.e., it was not created automatically just to support the web path)
      • has already been explicitly disabled
    • Also note that:
      • network paths that are not automatically disabled when the web path is disabled will not be automatically re-enabled when the web path is re-enabled
      • network paths that are automatically disabled when the web path is disabled will be enabled whenever one of its associated web paths is re-enabled (either manually, or as a result of a timed re-enable)

Enable web path monitoring

When a web path is created, monitoring is enabled by default. Monitoring can be disabled though. If monitoring on a web path has been disabled, it can be re-enabled.

To enable monitoring on one or more web paths:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. Select the web paths you want to enable.
  3. From the Action drop-down, click Enable Monitoring.

  3. For the web path you want to change, select a testing interval in the Interval (min) column.
  4. Click Save.
    • The testing interval is changed.

License an unlicensed web path

A web path’s status will show as Informational Blue circle with white i if it is unlicensed. This happens when the web path is unlicensed manually or if it was created when there were not enough available application licenses on the Monitoring Point. You can license a web path in this state if there are enough application licenses available.

To license an unlicensed web path:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web App Groups.
  2. For the web app group you want to edit, click Configure.
    • The web app group details are presented in “Edit Mode”.
  3. For the web path you want to license, select a license in the App License Type column.
  4. Click Save.
    • The web path is licensed.

Unlicense a web path

You can free up an application license by unlicensing a currently licensed web path.

To unlicense a web path:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web App Groups.
  2. For the web app group you want to edit, click Configure.
    • The web app group details are presented in “Edit Mode”.
