Select objects you want the group to contain, or specify group members using a dynamic query based on shared properties. Objects added through dynamic queries are automatically added or removed from the group.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  2. In the Node & Group Management grouping, click Manage Groups.
  3. Click Add New Group.
  4. Click Advanced to set the Status Rollup Mode, how often objects refresh in the group, or any custom properties.

    To create custom properties, click Manage Custom Properties in a new tab. See Custom properties.

  5. Manually or automatically select objects for this group.

    • Select the check box next to the object to select object manually.
    • Automatically select group members based on shared properties by clicking Add Dynamic Query and creating conditions.

      Click Preview to verify that the dynamic query is selecting the intended objects.

  6. Click Create Group.

The new group is listed on the Manage Groups page and can be used in other parts of the product, including alerts and dependencies.
