group pageviews by directory

Is it possible to group pageviews (or any other metric) by directory within our website? Meaning, could we have a filter that would recognize URLs that match between the first two backslashes "www.epa.gov/....../..." without having to separately type in every single directory? For example, I would want to see how total pageviews for all URLs that begin with "www.epa.gov/asbestos/..." compare with all "www.epa.gov/lead/..." pages and with "www.epa.gov/pesticides/..." and so on, but with the filter recognizing them as URL patterns rather than having to specify the actual text. Does that make sense?

Hi EPA C,

 

This is actually done for you in the Behavior>>Site Content>>Content Drilldown

 

That said it only goes down three levels.  You can also use content grouping to create your own content groups moving forward.
