Documentation forIP Address Manager
Managing IP addresses is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability and is also available in a standalone module, IP Address Manager (IPAM). Hybrid Cloud Observability and IPAM are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

IPAM groups

You can create groups in SolarWinds IPAM to help organize your network. The drag‑and‑drop user interface on the Manage Subnets & IP Addresses makes it easy to create groups containing any number of other groups, supernets, and subnets.

In the example below, a large network is spread over multiple offices, each with its own sales, marketing, and development departments.

Each branch office unit has its own assigned IP addresses or subnet. You can group all the various network components related to each department of each branch office into its own group.

Create groups

  1. Click My Dashboards > IP Address Manager > Manage Subnets & IP Addresses.
  2. Click Add > Group.
  3. Enter a name for the group.
  4. (Optional) Add a description and custom properties for the group.
  5. Click Save.

You can now drag and drop other groups, subnets, and supernets into your group to organize your network.

Groups can be edited by selecting the group in step 2 and clicking Edit.
