The Administration Services view provides options for creating and managing groups of services. The Services panel toolbar includes options for creating, editing, and deleting service groups. Once groups are created, you can drag individual services from the Services panel into a group.

Groups may reflect functional, geographical, project-oriented, or any other organization principle that is useful. A service may belong to more than one group. Here are some examples of possible groupings.

  • Group different service types to make it easier to configure and monitor all Brokers, Decoders, or Concentrators.
  • Group services that are part of the same data flow; for example, a Broker, and all associated Concentrators and Decoders.
  • Group services according to their geographic region and location within the region. If a major power outage occurs in a location, potentially affected services are easily identifiable.

Create a Group

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.

    The Administration Services view is displayed.

  2. In the Groups panel toolbar, click IconAddDevice.png.

    A field for the new group opens with a blinking cursor.


  3. Type the name of the new group in the field (for example, A New Group) and press Enter.

    The group is created as a folder in the tree. The number next to the group indicates the number of services in that group.


Change the Name of a Group

  1. In the Services view Groups panel, double-click the group name or select the group and clickIconEditDevice.png.

    The name field opens with a blinking cursor.

  2. Type the new name of the group and press Enter.

    The name field closes and the new group name is displayed in the tree.

Add a Service to a Group

In the Services view Services panel, select a service and drag the service to a group folder in the groups panel; for example,Log Collectors.

The service is added to the group.

View the Services in a Group

To view the services in a group, click the group in the Groups panel.

The Services panel lists the services in that group.

Remove a Service from a Group 

  1. In the Services view Groups panel, select the group that contains the service that you want to remove. The services in that group appear in the Services panel.
  2. In the Services panel, select one or more services that you want to remove from the group, and in the toolbar, select 104ApplRem.png> Remove from Group.

    The selected services are removed from the group, but are not removed from the Security Analytics user interface. The number of services in the group, which is listed near the group name, decreases by the number of services removed from the group. The All group contains the services that were removed from the group.

    In the following example, the service group called A New Group does not contain any services, since the service in that group was removed.


Delete a Group

  1. In the Services view Groups panel, select the group that you want to delete. 
  2. Click 104ServRem.png.

    The selected group is removed from the Groups panel. The services that were in the group are not removed from the Security Analytics user interface. The All group contains the services from the deleted group.
