About arranging devices into groups

You can use the device group tree to arrange devices into groups. The device group tree supports up to six nesting levels.

Devices can be put into groups at any level of the hierarchy. However, each device can be added to only one of the groups in the tree.

The tree also has a limit of no more than 1,000 groups.

Until a device is added to a specific group, information about this device does not contain any information about the specific location of the device. This device is assigned to the top level of the hierarchy within the group tree. After a device is added to a group, the application saves the location of this device as the full path to the group in the group tree.

Devices can be arranged into groups in the following ways:

  • Automatically group devices based on a specific criterion.

    Using this type of device grouping, the application can automatically add groups to the device group tree. Groups are added when the application detects devices whose information matches the selected grouping criterion. The names of groups are assigned from a range of specific values for the selected criterion (for example, from the names of device categories when grouping by category).

  • Manually arrange devices into groups.

    You can manually arrange devices into groups, including by adding devices into relevant groups and excluding them from other groups. When necessary, you can make changes to the device group tree by utilizing the available functions for manually forming the device group tree.
