Creating Device Groups

A device group enables you to easily deploy common configurations across all the devices of the 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

  1. Navigate to Manager View | Firewalls > Inventory page.
  2. Click Add.

  3. Enter the Friendly Name and Tags in their respective fields.
  4. Select devices listed in Unassigned Devices to add to the group being created and click caret-right icon.

    The devices are moved to list.

  5. Click Save.

The newly created group is listed under the default group—, which cannot be deleted.

To create a device group under another device group

  1. Hover over the group under which you want to create a new device group.
  2. Click the Ellipses icon in the column and select Add a Group under this Group.
  3. Follow steps 3 through 5 in the above procedure for creating a device group.

The newly created group is added under the selected parent group. Click the caret icon next to the parent group to view the newly added group.
