The Groups panel toolbar provides options for managing groups of hosts. Use the toolbar to create, edit, and delete groups. After you create a group, you can drag individual hosts from the Hosts panel into that group.
Use groups may to organize hosts by function, geography, project, or any other organization principle that is useful. A host may belong to more than one group.
In NetWitness Platform, go to (Admin) > Hosts. The Groups panel toolbar is at the top of the Groups grid in the Hosts view.
The Groups panel provides a way to create logical groups of hosts. Once hosts are grouped, it is easier to perform operations on multiple hosts by interacting with each host in a group rather than individual hosts from an non-grouped list.
Note: In NetWitness Live, groups can subscribe to resources while individual hosts cannot.
The Groups panel consists of a grid populated with a list of defined host groups and the Groups Panel Toolbar.
