Kaspersky Security Center

Creating administration groups

April 8, 2024

ID 213597

Immediately after Kaspersky Security Center installation, the hierarchy of administration groups contains only one administration group, called Managed devices. When creating a hierarchy of administration groups, you can add devices, including virtual machines, to the Managed devices group, and add nested groups (see the figure below).

Three nested groups are added in the Managed devices group. One added group has a nested group.

Viewing administration groups hierarchy

To create an administration group:

  1. In the main menu, go to Devices → Hierarchy of groups.
  2. In the administration group structure, select the administration group that is to include the new administration group.
  3. Click the Add button.
  4. In the Name of the new administration group window that opens, enter a name for the group, and then click the Add button.

A new administration group with the specified name appears in the hierarchy of administration groups.

The application allows creating a hierarchy of administration groups based on the structure of Active Directory or the domain network's structure. Also, you can create a structure of groups from a text file.

To create a structure of administration groups:

  1. In the main menu, go to Devices → Hierarchy of groups.
  2. Click the Import button.

The New administration group structure wizard starts. Follow the instructions of the wizard.
