How to Add a Device to a Category Device Group

This process allows you to add one or more devices to an OmniCenter category.

To add devices to a category device group in OmniCenter:

From the OmniCenter main menu, select Administration → Grouping → Category to open the the Category Administration page.

Determine which category you would like to add devices to and in its ACTIONS column click the edit button to open the device assignment page.

On the device assignment page:

  1. Select the strategic group containing the devices that you want to add to the category to narrow the selection options, or select “Everything” to show all devices in all strategic groups, “None” to show all devices not in any strategic groups, or “All Devices” to show all devices in OmniCenter.
  2. In the device selection grid that appears, place a checkmark next to the devices which you would like to add to the category.
    • Use the search box to filter the list if necessary. Currently selected devices will remain checked.
  3.  Click the Add to Category button.

The selected devices will then show up in the “Add to Category X” column and a message will be printed to the top of the page indicating that the devices have been added. At this point, the devices are now in the respective category and you may navigate away from the device assignment page.
