We have added a new snapin to Multisite: Virtual Host Tree. This snapin allows you to have trees of your hosts created based upon tags. In order to use this simply add the snapin to your sidebar and go to the Global Settings, section Status GUI (Multisite) and the new setting Virtual Host Trees.
You can create an arbitrary number of virtual trees. They will be globally visible for all users. Each tree consists of a sequence of tag groups. Let's assume that you have created a virtual tree from the three fictive tag groups Location, Application and Criticality. The virtual host tree will then have tree levels. At the top level there is the selection of the location, on the second level the application and on the leaf-level the criticality.
A click of an arbitrary node of the tree brings you to all hosts having the selected tags.
