Manually Adding Devices to Groups

  • Last updated on

Optionally, you can manually add devices to groups. When you add a device to a group, it is included in the group regardless of whether it matches the inclusion rules or whether it exists in the group scope.

To manually add devices to an existing service group

  1. In Service Center, click Configuration > Groups.

  2. Click the Service Groups tab.
  3. Click the name of the service group to modify.
    If you need to create a service group first, see Creating a Group.
  4. Click the Manual Inclusion tab.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Filter the list of devices by doing any of the following:
    • Use the Filter By list at the top of the dialog box to specify the devices you want to see in the list.
    • Use the lists under each column header to filter the list even more.
  7. To filter the list more, do one of the following:
    • Use the filter lists under the column headings.
    • Type filter criteria in the control under the column heading.
      For example, type DT to filter all the devices that contain DT (which stands for Desktop in this example) in the device name.

    When using filters to add devices to groups, not all information may be available until the first asset scan for a new site has completed. See About Filters.

  8. Do one of the following:
    • Select the check box that corresponds with each device you want to add to the group.
    • Select the check box in the column header to select all the devices.
  9. Click Add.
