Dynamic Group Templates

Dynamic group templates establish the criteria computers must meet to be placed in a Dynamic group. When these criteria are met by a client, a client will automatically be moved into the appropriate Dynamic Group.


A template is a static object stored in a Static group. Users must have appropriate permissions to access templates. A user needs access permissions to be able to work with Dynamic Group templates. All pre-defined templates are located in the static group All and are by default available only to the Administrator. Other users need to be assigned additional permissions. As a result, users may be unable to see or use default templates. The templates can be moved to a group where the users have permissions.

To duplicate a template, the user must be assigned Use permissions (for Dynamic Group templates) for the group where the source template is located, and Write permissions for the user's home group (where the duplicate will be stored). See the object duplication example.
