How to Create a Category Device Group

To create a new category device group in OmniCenter:

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

On the Category Administration page, click the Create New Category button to open the Create New Category pop-up dialog.

In the Create New Category pop-up dialog:

  1. Enter a name for your new category.
    • This is the name that will be displayed in the dashboards and device group selection dialogs. Categories cannot be renamed once created.
    • It’s recommended that the name you choose not be longer than approximately 16 characters.
  2. Select a device classification for the category (Routers, Servers, etc.).
    • The name of the selection will be appended to your category’s name. A category’s classification selection may not be changed once the category is created.
  3. In the “Template” field, select a device template (if desired) to be applied to all of the devices that are put into this category.
    • The selected template will be applied to devices at the “category” device template hierarchy level.
    • A device template can be added, removed or changed at any time after a category has been created..
  4. Click the Create Category button.

Your new category is created and now appears on the Category Administration page, ready to have devices added to it.
