From the Global Monitoring - Group Entities page, you can achieve the functionalities as follows:

  • View the list of all the group entities with entity type filter, group-id searching, and sorted by various fields

  • View the details of each group entity

  • Edit each group entity data and its relevant metadata

  • View and copy the JSON raw data of the displayed list of groups

  • Create new group entities

  • Delete group entity individually

  • Switch to the associated group details page of each group entity

As for the details of how to create and retrieve group entities through APIs, refer to the group APIs docs here.

The following screen will be seen when browsing to Monitoring | Global Monitoring | Group Entities page, which will list all the group entities of your current app.

Clicking on the Group ID column of each entry will open Edit Group pop-up window.

From the opened Edit Group window, you can edit the group Data and Summary Data (click the tabs to switch between them).

And check the list of group members, invited members, and requested members. (click the tabs to switch between them).

Note: Only a group owner/admin can invite and/or approve non-members to join their group. Non-owner-members will get a "Insufficient permissions" error if trying to invite and/or approve members to join their group.

(Caution: If you click the Delete button from Edit Group pop-up window, all the entities associated with this group will be removed from your app.)

Click the + icon at the upper right corner of the group entities list, it will open Add Group Entity pop-up window, fill in the metadata info for this entity Group ID, Entity Type and Owner ID, select ACL from drop-down menu, and then enter the data for this entity.

Data - This is the field you define your group entity data. (By clicking the {Retrieve Example} button if you select an existing type, you are able to get reference data from other entities of the selected type)

Click View/Edit option from Actions drop-down menu of each entity entry, it will open Edit Group Entity pop-up window, from here you can edit the metadata of this group entity, such as Entity Type, Owner ID, ACL, and the entity data.

Clicking Delete button on this window will delete this group entity from your app.

To search an individual group entity from the group entities list, you can just enter the Group ID into the search bar on the upper-right corner of the list and click Search, it will return the group entities which group Id match the searching field.

You can also filter the group entities by entity type via selecting the specific type listed on the Filter by drop-down menu.

(Note: You can combine the above two operations, search and filter by, together to narrow down your return result.)

Click the {...} icon beside the filter menu to view and copy the JSON raw data of the currently displayed list of group entities. (Note: you can choose to list whole group entities of your app or list only the specific type of group entities by applying the search or/and filter operations)
