Grouping related transactions

Groups give you the ability to logically organize monitored objects, regardless of device type or location for alerting or reporting purposes. Groups can contain any SolarWinds objects that report a status, including transactions and even other groups. You create, delete, and modify groups from the Manage Groups page.

Nesting a group within another does not create a strict parent/child relationship. You can include any group as a member in any number of other groups.

  1. Log on to the web console.
  2. Click Settings in the top right of the web console.
  3. Click Manage Groups in the Node & Group Management grouping of the Website Administration page.
  4. Click Add New Group.
  5. Enter a Name and Description for the transaction group.
  6. Select Transactions from the Show Only dropdown, and select [No Grouping] from the Group by dropdown.
  7. Check the transactions to be added to the group.

you can use the same procedure for creating groups of Transaction Steps or Player Locations by changing the selection made in step 6.

For further information on using the Manage Groups settings, please see the Group objects and mirror network dependencies in the Orion Web Console chapter of the NPM Administrator Guide.
