Create or edit a user-defined group

You can create as many user-defined groups as you need to support your rules and filters.

You can only add a group to one SEM manager at a time. To copy a group for use with another SEM manager, export the group and then import it into the other manager's Groups grid.

  1. On the SEM Console, click the Configure tab.
  2. From the Configure drop-down list, select User-defined groups.
  3. Click Create User-defined group.

    The Create User-defined group window is displayed.

  4.  Click Add element.

  5. In the Name field, enter a nickname for the element. This name is for reference only.

  6. In the Value field, enter a value to define the element. You can use wildcard characters, such as asterisks (*), to abbreviate these entries.
  7. In the description field, enter a description (optional), and then click Add.

    In the elements list, you can search for a specific element, and select an element to edit the values or delete it. You can also export the elements to a CSV file to import into other user-defined groups.

  8. Continue to add elements as needed, and then click Next.

  9. Add your group name and description (optional), and then click Create. The new group appears in the user-defined groups list, and can now be used when configuring rules and filters.

  10. To edit a user-defined group, select a group in the list, and then click Edit on the toolbar. In the Refine Results pane, you can also filter the groups by the modifier and the time last modified.
