Configure event groups in LEM

Updated: September 15, 2017

Event groups organize similar events for use with rules and filters. For example, if you add an event group to a rule, the rule will fire any time an event in the group occurs. LEM ships with more than a dozen predefined event groups, for example: virus/scanner events, process start/stop events, change management events, and so on.

Create or edit an event group

See Add a new group or Edit a group to get started adding or editing a group.

The following table describes how to configure the form fields for event groups.

Field Description
Name Enter a name for the event group.

LEM Manager

Click the Manager drop-down list and select the Manager that will host the group.

If you are editing an existing group, this field displays the hosting Manager.
