Creating a Filter Device Group

About this task

To create a filter device group:


  1. Create a virtual group.
  2. Click the grey banner above the virtual group's device list: Drag devices into the virtual group, or click to add a filter.
  3. Enter the filter criteria.
    The filter supports the same search logic as the Advanced Search. However, some device properties may be unavailable for use as filter criteria.
  4. When you are satisfied with the filter criteria, click Save as Filtered Group.


The filter group will be populated according to the filter criteria. Devices in the virtual group before the filter was applied will be removed from the filter unless they match the filter criteria. Removed devices will lose any device configuration settings that were applied to them based on their membership in the virtual group.
