Device Groups

NSM enables you to create device group(s), deploy and manage common configurations across all the devices of a device group using templates. You can create device groups based on your requirement, for example: geographical location, business function and so on. To create a device group, see Creating Device Groups

The Manager View | Firewalls > Groups page displays the device groups that are created under the Root Group. To review the configuration of a device group in the Group View, click on the group name. The devices that are not part of any device groups are listed under Unassigned Firewalls.

Multi-tenant administrators can click on the Tenant name and select any other tenant to display and manage the groups created under that tenant. You can also select All Tenants option to display and manage device groups of all the tenants in a single pane of glass.

In the table you can see the all the device groups listed. Click the caret icon next to the group name to see devices that are part of the device group.
