Creating a group is a straightforward process of selecting the Orion objects you want the group to contain. At creation time, you can also decide how you want SolarWinds to roll up the status of the group members.

It is also possible to specify group members on the basis of shared properties by adding them with a dynamic query. Orion Platform objects added through dynamic queries are automatically added or removed from the group.

  1. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds > Orion Web Console.
  2. Go to Settings and then click Manage Groups.
  3. Click Add New Group.
  4. Enter a name for the group in the Name field, and then expand Advanced.
  5. If you want the group to roll up the worst status of the group members, select Show Worst Status.
  6. If you want the group to roll up the best status of the group members, select Show Best Status.
  7. If you want the group to display a warning status if the group members have a mixture of different statuses, select Mixed Status shows warning.
  8. Click Next.
  9. To individually select group members:

    1. In the Show Only list, select the type of Orion Platform object you want to add as a group member.
    2. Check the check box of the Orion Platform object, and then click Add to Group.
  10. To dynamically select group members based on shared properties:

    1. Click Add dynamic query.
    2. Enter a name for the query in the Dynamic query object name field.
    3. Select an Orion Platform object type in the Orion Object is list.
    4. Click Add Condition to specify further selection properties.

      Use the question mark (?) character as a multiple character wildcard. Use the underscore (_) character as a single character wildcard.

    5. Click Preview to verify that the dynamic query is selecting your intended objects.
    6. Click Save.
  11. Continue adding individual Orion Platform objects or dynamic queries until you have finished building your group.
  12. Click Create Group.
