Groups

Groups are a part of the Computers section. Think of them as folders where computers are categorized.

For computers, you can use pre-defined groups or create new ones. Client computers can be added to groups. This helps you keep the computers structured and arranged to your liking. You can add computers to a Custom Group.

Static Groups are managed manually, while Dynamic Groups are arranged automatically based on specific criteria. Once computers are in groups, you can assign policies, tasks, or notifications to these groups. The policy, task or notification is then applied to all the members of the group. There are two types of client groups:

Static Groups

Static Groups are groups of selected client computers. Group members are static and can only be added/removed manually. A computer can only be present in one Static Group. An object can only be present in one Static Group. A static group can be deleted only if there are no objects contained in it.

Dynamic Groups

Dynamic Groups are groups of computers where membership in the group is determined by specific criteria. If a client device does not meet that criteria, it will be removed from the group. Computers that satisfy the criteria will be added to the group automatically (hence the name "dynamic").

Dynamic Groups can be seen as filters. Computers that meet the criteria for multiple Dynamic Groups will be assigned to all of the groups.

A list of all groups and their subgroups is displayed on the left. You can select a group and an action for this group from the context menu (icon_cogwheel next to the group name). The options are the same as those described below (group actions button).
