Is there a way to have an Agent automatically add new sites to an Application and Tier rather than manually adding sites?

We have a lot of shared web clusters are sorted by Application.

If a developer wants their new .NET site to show up on AppDynamics console, they send us an email and then we have to manually add the new site, put in change requests, alert everyone who uses the server, and then take the servers out of service one by one and do an IISRESET.

 

Does AppDynamics have a way to auto-assign a site to an App and Tier or auto-generate an assignment?

 

It would be great if the only manual item we had to do was an IISRESET, which could be scheduled and automated.

Yes Agent can automatically name a Tier for a website, just used Automatic setting in config.xml file

Thank you for the answer. I believe I did not clarify well enough that I was hoping the agent could auto-assign the sites. It appears that is only a manual process as per this info:

 

?Automatic Tier Naming for the .NET Agent doesn't automatically assign a virtual application to a tier."
