Meet NEO Sense: The web application version of Monika. It simplifies the use of Monika through an easy-to-use dashboard interface. It provides a graphical user interface for you to create probes, set alerts and notifications, and check the validity of your TLS/SSL certificates.

You can start using NEO Sense by navigating to https://neosense.bgnlab.id and creating an account. You will receive an email to confirm your account.
After confirming your email, log in to the website, and you will be redirected to the Create Organization page. Fill out the organization details and click Create.
You will be redirected to the Create Project page. Set your first project name, and select your time zone. By default, it will automatically use your current time zone. Click Continue to go to the dashboard.
In the dashboard, click the Add New Probe button. Then, fill out the probe details such as probe protocol (HTTP/TCP), name, URL, and description. Then, save the probe by clicking the Add New Probe button. Remember that to monitor TLS/SSL certificate status, you need to use HTTPS URL.
After you created your first probe, you can click your organization name (in my case, My Organization) menu on the sidebar. You can create a new project by clicking the Add New Project button. Fill out the form, and click Add New Project to create your new project. From there, you can create new probes under the newly created project.
If you want to create a new organization, click the New Organization button on the sidebar. Fill out the form, and click Add New Organization button. From there, you can create new projects and probes under the newly created organization.
If you want to limit which organizations are visible to certain users, you can navigate to the Members tab on the Organization page, and invite the users into the organization.
Congratulations, you can now group your probes by project or organization so that you can define a clearer scope for your team!
In conclusion, grouping probes by organizations or projects in NEO Sense is a powerful way to monitor and analyze performance metrics for your websites and APIs in a more organized and efficient manner.
