Assign a SAM template to a group
Assigning an application monitor template to a group is more efficient than applying the template to individual nodes one at a time. Before you begin, create as least one group, as described in the Orion Platform Administrator Guide.
- Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Manage Templates > Application Monitor Templates.
- Select a template and then click Assign to Group.
- Select a group from the Available Groups column, click the green arrow, and then click Next.
By default, the template is assigned to those nodes in the group that are running a server operating system. This can be changed in the Advanced section at the bottom of the page. When a node is removed from a group, the application is deleted from the node by default. You can override this by selecting No under the Advanced section.
- Select your credentials and then click, Assign Groups.
- Click Done.
It may take 10 minutes or so for assignments to be processed. If it takes longer, you may need to restart services.
Your templates are now assigned to a group.
To view the applications within a group, click My Dashboards > SAM Summary and then click a group in the Application Templates Assigned to Group widget.
You can create dynamic groups and assign templates to these groups. For example, create a dynamic group for all Windows computers and the Windows Update template will be applied to the nodes of the group dynamically.
