How to Assign Devices to a Category Device Group

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

See How to Create a Category Device Group.

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 category edit page.

On the edit page, select the “Devices” tab to open the device assignment page:

  1. On the left, select the functional 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 functional groups, “None” to show all devices not in any functional 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 “Devices in Category” table on the right and a message will be printed to the top of the page indicating that the devices have been added.

At this point, the devices have now been assigned to the respective category and you may navigate away from the device assignment page.
