Create resource groups

This topic describes how to create resource groups, which are logical collections of resources.

Resource groups help you organize and manage the agents installed in different environments throughout the network. For example, resource groups can manage multitenant scenarios in which several machines share the same resources.

The groups you create and the way you organize them, such as using subgroups, depend on your organizational processes and infrastructure.

Note: Before creating a resource group, ensure that at least one agent is installed in a target environment.

To create a resource group:

  1. Navigate to Management > Resources.

  2. Select the Groups tab.
  3. In the side pane, expand All Resource Groups, and select the resource where you want to create a group.
  4. Click Create Resource Group.

  5. in the dialog box that opens, enter the following details:

    Field Description
    Name Enter the group's name. Typically, the name corresponds to the environment the resource participates in, the component that uses the resource group, or a combination of both, for example SIT, DB, or SIT-DB.
    Description Enter additional information about how you intend to use the resource to which this group is assigned.

    Select a type from these options:

    • Static: Typical
    • Dynamic: This type enables you to add conditions that direct the system to find and select a resource name to add to the group. You can use name patterns so that resources of certain naming conventions are dynamically added to the group.
  6. To continue creating resource groups and stay in the list, click Save.

    To configure the resource group you just created, click Build Out.

    After assigning a group to a resource, you can add subresources. A subresource enables you to apply logical identifiers, or categories, within a group. When configuring deployments, you can select a subresource to run the process.

  7. To create a subresource, select a group and then click Create Resource Group.
