From time to time we, the DC RUM product management, have a question to you: DC RUM users.
Here is one:
Do you still actively use Reporting Groups? If yes, why? What is the use case that keeps you from migrating to the business hierarchy of Applications/Transactions/Tiers?
In the upcoming 2018 release we would like to remove Reporting Groups from the Business Units Configurator and from the built-in reports; further on we would like to mark those as deprecated and scheduled for removal in the next 2019 release.
Please let us know if (and WHY) that would be a showstopper for you.
Senior Technical Product Manager, DC RUM
My client uses reporting group quite extensively. It was just something that they started off with then the App/trans model did not exist and have continued to use it since. As of version 12.4 Reporting groups was depreciated as a dimension from the ADS data and this caused a lot of problems. I don't think they would be opposed to go to an App/trans view but will definitely be sensitive to change since a lot of the higher up executives and directors use this feature.
