You can use the TrueSight console to add, edit, and delete a group. You can also create a parent group and child groups under the parent group.

To create a static group

  1. Go to Configuration > Groups and click action menu next to Group Configuration.

    Note

    The Create Group icon is visible only on the Manual Groups tab. You cannot perform add, update, or delete operations on synchronized groups because these groups are automatically synchronized from Infrastructure Management.

  2. Click Create Group.
  3. Because you are creating a static group, the Type field displays Static Group.
  4. Specify information as per the following table:

    Field nameDescription
    Group Name

    A name for the group you are creating.

    Note

    The group name must be within 60 characters. 

    DescriptionA brief description of what the group was created for.
    Parent GroupsSelect the parent group if you want the newly created group to be a child of this parent group. You can choose more than one parent group.
    Child Groups

    Select the child group that must belong to the newly created group. You can select either a manual or automatically synchronized group as a child group. You can select more than one group as a child group.

    Note

    You can select a child group from a list of manual and automatically synchronized groups. The automatically synchronized group names are displayed along with their associated Infrastructure Management server names enclosed in the parentheses as shown in the following screenshot.

    Assigned DevicesSelect the devices that must be a part of the group. You can search for devices by entering a string in the Search for Device field and clicking Search. All devices that contain the string in their names are displayed. You can also select the Add All Devices check box if you want all the devices to be a part of the group. The devices that are displayed are streamed from Infrastructure Management and AppVisibility.
    Assigned Monitor Instances

    Select the monitor instances that must be a part of the group. You can search for monitor instances by entering a string in the Search for Monitors field and clicking Search. All monitor instances that contain the string in their names are displayed. You can also select the Add All Monitors check box if you want all the monitor instances to be a part of the group. The monitor instances that are displayed are streamed from Infrastructure Management.

    The Monitor Instances part shows the absolute path, only when Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is enabled under User Preferences.

    For example, 

    If Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is not enabled, the path is displayed as <Server Host Name>:System Paging

    If Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is enabled, the path is displayed as <Server Host Name>:Windows Operating System/System Paging. Notice the Windows Operating System/System Paging in the path.

  5. Click Save.

To update a static group

  1. Go to Configuration > Groups.
  2. All the parent groups are displayed in the Group Configuration page. Expand the group name of the group that you want to update. If you want to update a child group, navigate to the child group name and expand it.
  3. Click the action menu  next to the group name and select Edit Group.
  4. Make the required update. You can add or remove parent groups, child groups, assigned devices, and monitor instances.
  5. Click Save.
