How to Create an Asset Group

Asset groups are collections of assets (user-defined devices other than the machines that are found during discovery) that you define. Asset groups are used to organize your assets and for filtering in reports.

To create an asset group:

  1. From the Other Assets panel, select the File menu.

    Point to New Group and select Asset.

    If the Asset option is dimmed when you point to New Group, select Other Assets in the left pane of the panel and try again.  
  2. In the New Asset Group dialog box, enter the name of the new group and select OK.

The new group appears in the Other Assets panel, below the Deleted assets folder. If you selected an existing user-added group before opening the New Asset Group dialog box, the new group will be created as a subgroup of the selected group. You can also create a group by right-clicking on Other assets (at the top of the tree) or on an existing assets group, then selecting New Group.

To add assets to this group:
  • Select the assets in the right pane and drag them to the group in the left pane.

  • Right-click on a machine to open the New Asset dialog box, then in the Member Of tab, select Add.
