Application Dependencies

What is the deal with all the dependencies when adding specific applications or application groups containing filters?

Feature Request: it would be nice to show a prompt of dependencies when an application is added with an option to add the required dependencies.

When commiting the policy, a dependency warning appears each time until the dependency is added, one-by-one.

Feature Request: it would be nice to have a flag to ignore these so they don't keep showing up.

Re: Application Dependencies

Well I am not sure if it's a good idea, for example gotomeeting is a sub app of Citrix ...

I don't know what Citrix app allows exactly, but I can enable gotomeeting without enabling Citrix (and it works fine), while it gives warnings during commit.

I wouldn't want PA to auto-enable Citrix for me, it may allow too many things than what I want...

Re: Application Dependencies

I would really like to be able to ignore the errors and not have them appear in the commit output.  We have several that alert but don't actually appear to cause an issue, Facebook posting requiring Facebook chat is the one that comes to mind.
