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.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > SAM Settings > Manage Templates > Application Monitor Templates.
  2. Select a template and then click Assign to Group.

  3. 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.

  4. Select your credentials and then click, Assign Groups.
  5. 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.
