Move Static or Dynamic Group

A Dynamic Group can be a member of any other group including Static Groups. A Static Group cannot be moved into a Dynamic Group. Also, you cannot move pre-defined Static Groups (for example, the Lost & found Static Group) to any other group. Other groups can be moved freely.

Click the gear icon gear_icon next to the group name and select Move. A window will be displayed showing the group's tree structure. Select the target group (static or dynamic) into which you want to move the selected group. The target group will become a parent group. You can also move groups by dragging and dropping a group into the target group of your choice.


The Dynamic Group in a new position starts to filter computers (based on the template) without any relation to its previous location.

There are 3 methods to move a group:

Drag and drop - click and hold the group you want to move and release it above the new parent group.


Click the gear icon gear_icon > Move > select a new parent group from the list and click OK.


Click the gear icon gear_icon > Edit > select Change parent group. Select a new parent group from the list and click OK.
