As with other areas of LogicMonitor, websites can be organized into logical groupings. Groups can make website management significantly easier and save time when configuring dashboards, reports, user roles, website properties, and alert routing.
There isn’t one right or wrong way to group your websites. But there are a couple of common approaches LogicMonitor recommends that have been proven to be efficient depending upon your objectives:
To begin the creation of a new website group, select Websites | Add | New Group. In the Add Website Group dialog that opens, there are several pieces of information that must be provided, as shown (and discussed) next.
Note: Website groups can also be added using LogicMonitor’s API; see Using LogicMonitor’s REST API for more information.
The Enable Monitoring and Enable Alerting options allow you to turn monitoring, and, optionally, alerting on and off for all websites that are members of this group. Monitoring must be enabled in order to additionally enable alerting.
In the Name field, enter a descriptive name for the website group. Website group names cannot include the operators and comparisons functions listed in the Complex Datapoints support article.
In the Description field, briefly describe the scope and purpose of your new website group.
From the Parent group field’s dropdown menu, select the group that the website group should belong to from the list of existing groups. By default, the new website group will be created under the root website group (account name).
By selecting a parent group, you are, in effect, making your group a subgroup of the parent group. You can create as many subgroups as you need and the above strategies can apply to them as well. Two things to keep in mind when you organize websites using subgroups are:
Properties can be added to your website groups to facilitate organization, customize alert message templates, and more. The properties you set here will be inherited by all member websites and subgroups. For more information on adding and using properties, see Website Properties.
