Description:
When, eg., an HTTP proxy is required to communicate from MEM to the outside world, we will have 2 (and "should" have 4) discrete error messages on the What's New tab, indicating that the 2 (4) background pollers have failed in the same way, and require the same resolution.

Similarly, 2 of the 4 pollers are authenticated using enterprise credentials (though in similar, but different, ways).  As such, if the credentials have a simple typo, we will have 2 (though really 1, since 1 case isn't handled at present) messages.

Perhaps we can have a wrapper that consolidates related error messages when there's a need for it, to make the user experience better.  Perhaps we can get away without it.

How to repeat:

This feels like a P4.  In the hopefully not-too-often case where things break, users get more than one message instead of just one.  This is a UI optimization, with no loss of functionality, and not even much in the way of annoyance.

An entry was added to the 2.1.0 changelog:

On the What's New? page of the Enterprise Dashboard, multiple messages were generated for the same error. This cluttered the user interface.
