Customize the Canvas

You can choose what appears in your Visualizer canvas by applying filters for environments, tags, and services. This enables you to hide the nodes that you do not want to see in the application graph. Filters have a cascading design, so all nodes that don’t belong to the checked environments or tags are automatically hidden from the list of services.

You can toggle Show dependents and dependencies to see the services and dependencies of the nodes and services which have the selected tags. The View card and the canvas are updated to display the current selection.

Visualizer editors can save defined views so that any Visualizer user can access them. When you close Anypoint Visualizer and reload the canvas later, the views you last accessed are displayed.


You can use one of the default layers provided by Anypoint Visualizer, or add a custom layer to create a visual representation of the apps in your network.

For more information, see Use Layers in Anypoint Visualizer.


You can add tags to API, application, proxy, or other services, so you can use the tags as filters to adjust your view.

For more information, see Use Tags in Visualizer.


Visualizer editors define views based on filtered environments and tags. These defined views are auto discoverable and available to all Visualizer users who have permission for the included environments.
