When you add an application to an environment, you select from a list of predefined templates or create your own custom template, to group the objects to monitor in your application.

In the menu, click Environment, then Groups and Applications > Applications in the left pane. On the Applications tab, click the plus sign.

Each predefined template provides you with a list of suggested tiers designed to help you group related objects that perform a specific task in your application. After you select an option, you can alter the selection and number of tiers on the Application Management page.
