Business Services display interface status panels and node status panels in a single page. This allows grouping related interfaces/nodes together to have a single location that a user can see these related items.
Business services are supported under the MSP authorization system, so a user/role can be created to view one or more Business Services if required.
All Interfaces/Nodes added to the Business Service will be visible to any user with access to view that Business Service. The ability to view the service implies they are allowed to see all things inside. It does not imply they are allowed to view those Interfaces/Nodes on their own or in their entirety, they will only have access to this specific view.
Interfaces status panels allow MSP authorized users to click and view Interface usage over time graphs.
