Creating a Device Group

Creating a Device Group

You can add multiple devices on different subnets to a group, so they can be assigned to and managed by users as one object. This improves device management efficiency.


  • eSight predefines some device groups. When the predefined device groups cannot meet user requirements, you can create new device groups.
  • You can set dynamic rules when you create a device group. Devices that meet the dynamic rules will be automatically added to the device group. You can also manually add devices that do not meet the rules to the group.
  • When the device information changes, a device group is automatically updated. Devices that do not meet the dynamic rules are removed from the device group and devices that meet the dynamic rules are added to the device group.

Devices that are manually added to the device group can only be removed from the group manually.
