The ID of the view is made up of three different parts, described below.
The different parts are separated with dots.
|MPID||This is the management pack ID. This must be included to make the folder ID unique in the management group. To learn more about MPID, see Management pack naming|
|Description||This is the description of the folder. This could be the management pack name och the a description of the views that will be contained in the folder. It's important that it's clear what the purpose of the folder is.|
|Suffix||The type of element/workflow. This should be Folder.|
Using the table above we get the following examples:
|Folder Information||Folder ID (MPID left out)|
|This folder is used to group all alert views in the management pack.||MPID.AlertViews.Folder|
|This folder is used to group all views related to a specific class, MPID.ApplicationServersComputerRole.Class||MPID.ApplicationServers.Folder|
The folder display name is harder to set any fixed rules for. The folder name is what is shown in the Operations Console and must be clear enought so that the operator knows what's being show and to make it easy to navigate in the management pack. Often it's a variation on the description part of the Folder ID.
Based on the examples above the following display names coud be used.
|Folder ID (MPID left out)||Display Name|
