Create a group in NPM

This topic applies to all Orion Platform products.

A group is a collection of monitored objects. For example, you can group nodes from the same location, group all your WAN interfaces, or group all devices owned by a certain department. Or, you can group all Windows servers, or SQL servers, or web servers. You can then create alerts and reports or restrict access for the group.

The example below shows how to create a NY IT Department group and add five nodes to it.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings, and in the Node & Group Management grouping, click Manage Groups.
  2. Click Add New Group.
  3. Provide the required information, and click Next.

  4. Select the monitored objects that fit the group definition, and click Add to Group.

    Select a custom property in the Group by list.

  5. Click Create Group.

    The new group appears in the Manage Groups list.

    Click the group to display the Group Details view.
