I have a question regarding Dynatrace 6.2 dashboard filtering.
I have a large list of applications available in the system profile and I want to filter a dashboard to show information for a certain app. There’s no problem there. The issue I have is that there are more than 150 apps and choosing the right one from the entire list is a nightmare. I haven’t thought of this in the begining (when I configured the Applications) so that I would put some kind of marker in the name for it to be more visible and now it’s a little bit too late.
Do you know anyway I could somehow inhibit the choice of certain applications (for ex. the user could only choose to filter applications that are previously selected by me – or something like that)? Or maybe a way to have a list in a dashlet (ex. on the left screen) that has all application filtered and when i click on one, the rest of the dashboards will show only data from that one application?
I’ve found some master-slave discussions about dashlets but either I can’t make them to work or it doesn’t work at all… (https://github.com/Dynatrace/Master-Slave-Dashboard-Creator)

I can't think of any great options for handling your situation apart from paring down some of the applications (maybe combine some if appropriate) or emphasizing that the list of applications in the filter screen is searchable ("ctrl-f") to users who may need to use it. That master-slave creator has some uses but since it really is more of a "hack" than anything that is actually intended or supported there are a significant number of limitations and I cannot see a use case for it here based on what you're looking for.
So I'd say I don't see any great options apart from making changes to the applications and note that if you do decide to make a change the sooner the better.
