AppFirst has come out with another great feature to make organizing and filtering your data easier: Server Sets!
How it works:
If you’re already familiar with Server Tags, then you know tags allow you to organize your servers into logical groupings (Production, Database, QA) to help you see and manage all your servers. Server Sets are the next step in organization.
Server Sets are a way of creating dynamic groups of servers based on the intersection of two or more Server Tags.
For example: Servers [1, 2, 3, 4] have a tag “Linux,” servers [5, 6, 7, 8, 9] have a tag “Windows,” and servers [3, 4, 5, 6] have a tag “Database.” A server set called “Linux.Database” would produce a server group of [3, 4]. “Windows.Database” would produce [5, 6], etc. If you later add a new server  with tags “Linux” and “Database,” server set “Linux.Database” would automatically produce [3, 4, 10].
How to get started:
From the Administration menu, select Server Sets. In the upper left hand corner click “Add Server Set.” A list of current Server Tags appear on the left. Select which Server Tags you’d like to include in your Server Set. Select the Server Tags in the order you would like them to appear in your Server Set (ie Select “NY”, “Production”, “Database” for a Server Set of “NY.Production.Database”). You must select at least two Server Tags to create a Server Set.
