    Q: Can we have a groovy training session?

    Q: We are going to be on-boarding a client with 250 locations soon. Do you have anything pre-built we can use to mass create a folder structure for each location? We're aware of the API, but if we can avoid the leg work of building our own script, that'd be great!
    AP: Maybe in here:, but I'd think not. There is no way for them to know what type of structure you want. You could try posting to the community, to see if anyone wants to write one for you.

    Q: We are currently using the Email_TransitTime datasource, however, Microsoft is deprecating basic auth to 365. Do you know if Email_TransitTime datasource will be impacted? Will it be updated to use oauth 2.0? Is there a replacement method for monitoring email transit time using oauth 2.0?

    Q: We are in the process of replacing a set of core (from repo) DataSources with customized versions, but we don't want to edit nor delete the originals. We probably have lots and lots of Dashboards which will need to get updated to point at the new DataSources. Do you have any advice on how to identify or even bulk-update an unknown number of Widgets across an unknown number of Dashboards? Are there any code examples for such a thing?    LOL oops I just find this!  Awesome!!

    Q: We tried to find a way to filter an Alert Widget by a Property, to no avail. We are thinking that Dynamic Group(s) with AppliesTo matching the desired Properties is the work-around. Thoughts?

    Q: Related is an update SNmp_64If which this includes this computation, and we've customized this for specific router and switch purposes, and so I am trying to figure out what this means for what I might need to do in terms of datasource updates.  BTW, I'll be re-watching later to get this explanation again.  thx
