As you add paths, you’ll see your path list page getting longer and it might become harder to find what you’re looking for; this will also be true anywhere you’re asked to select a path. Fortunately, APM gives you some tools to help keep your organization tidy, and make you more efficient.

Group by
On the path list page you can separate one long list into multiple smaller lists based on a path attribute. If you want to re-arrange the list by a combination of attributes, you should create a saved list and then group by saved list.
Bulk action
On the path list page you can edit a path attribute or perform an action on multiple paths at once.
Saved lists
View or perform an action on paths that have multiple attributes in common.
Path template groups
Push the same path configuration to multiple paths.
Group and importance
These attributes exist only for the purpose of helping you find and filter for paths. You can re-arrange the path list page, re-arrange the path tree, filter reports, and search by either of these attributes. Group is simply a label you make up to identify a similarity among multiple paths; make it meaningful like a location or what the paths are used for; each path can belong to only one group. Groups are useful when paths can’t be grouped by other path attributes. Importance is number you assign to a path between 1 to 10, based on how important do you think this path is to your business; use 10 for the most important paths.
Search and sort
You can search by any path attribute, and tables can be sorted by any column.
