Computer Groups

You can classify Computers into groups. Some of the use cases where having Computer Groups can be convenient are as follows:

  • You want to deploy Patches in Computers belonging to a particular department. You can create a Computer Group having all the Computers of that department and quickly create a Deployment Request with that group.
  • If you want to deny a specific set of Computers certain Patches, then you can create a Computer Group and decline them the Patches. The Decline Patch Configuration feature allows you to perform such an action.
  • You can test the download ability of a set of Patches by deploying them in a Computer Group. The Automatic Patch Test feature allows you to perform such tests.

To view the Computer Groups page, navigate to Admin > Patch Management > Computer Groups.
