Components are designed to represent different parts of your product, including infrastructure. Some products have a web app, API and integrations, which all are components.
Grouping components allow you to nest components within each other. For example, you may have several versions of your API so you could have API and then v1 and v2 underneath.
Components have three states: Operational, Degraded or Under Maintenance.
