Purpose

This document describes how to set up and manage dynamic target groups.

Introduction

A dynamic group is managed by the system so all targets that match the criteria for the group will automatically be added to the group. Targets that no longer matches the criteria will be removed.

Managing Dynamic Target Groups


Example

Adding a filter on an  IP-range makes sure that all targets within that range is part of the group. New targets being added within the same IP-range is automatically added to the group. Any number of filters can be applied when creating the group.

To create a dynamic group complete the following steps.

Creating a View From Filters

The first step is to create a filter in your view.

  1. Go to Main Menu > Netsec > Manage Targets.
  2. Select All targets in the Target Groups list on the left side of the Manage Targets window. 
  3. Open the Filters menu by hovering the mouse pointer over the heading of a column and click on the little down pointing arrow to open the Column menu.

    Note

    Different columns gives different filter options depending on the content of the columns.





  4. Select Filters and create a filter by writing a string or number in the All: field.
  5. After you have created a filter open the Column menu again and select Views.
  6. Select Save View.



  7. Enter a name for the view and click the Save button.



  8. Your new view is now created.

Create a Dynamic Group

Once a view has been created you can proceed to create a dynamic group from that view.

  1. Go to Main Menu > Netsec > Manage Targets.
  2. Select your view.
  3. Right click the group and select New dynamic group.



  4. Name the new target group.



When the new dynamic group is ready, all new targets that are added and covered by the filter will be displayed in this group.

You can create different dynamic groups based on different filters and sorting.

Update Dynamic Group

The Update dynamic group updates a dynamic group with a new set of filters, disregarding the old ones.
