I've been using WPM for the past two months or so for my organization. Nothing too crazy - just creating recordings and fleshing out the dashboard. A lot of the applications at my organization are webapps, so it's simple enough to create a recording to see if the site is functional or not. What's also great is that there is an 'ALL TRANSACTIONS' chart that can be used as a report to determine whether the application is up or down. Now, not all of our applications are webapps, some are Citrix based applications that we would need to open up and login to determine if the application is up or down. We currently have a script for some of these types of applications, but I was wondering if there is anyway to run the script using SolarWinds and then somehow create it as a transaction so that it shows up on the 'ALL TRANSACTIONS' chart so I can include the manual applications status with the web apps?
