#47085 new enhancement

Site Health appear on individual sites in Multisite

The tests are all related to the server or the network of sites, rather than individual sites. Individual site admins are unlikely to be able to perform most of the recommended actions.

Would it make more sense to place the page in the Network Admin area, rather than on individual sites?

Er, it uses the install_plugins capability, so regular admins wouldn't see it anyway. It still probably makes more sense to place it in the Network Admin, but there aren't a lot of tangible downsides.

Agreed that multisite hasn't been given enough attention this time around. I'm thinking that we'll improve on this for 5.3, and introduce a view in network admin with all the heavy data, and a more generic version for end users, as many features are useful to regular site maintainers as well, especially as plugins and themes can extend them.

For now, as you mentioned, the capabilities limits it to network admins any way, so I'm happy not making any adjustments here for 5.2
