How to Create a Dynamic Asset Group Based on a Sensor

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst   Manager

In this example we are going to create a dynamic asset group based on a sensor. This is helpful when you have more than one USM Anywhere Sensor deployed in your environment. The asset group tags all assets monitored by the same sensor automatically. You do not have to mark them manually.

To create a dynamic asset group based on a sensor

  1. Go to Environment > Asset.
  2. From the Sensor filter on the left, select the USM Anywhere Sensor you want to create the asset group for.

    The page reloads showing only the assets monitored by the selected sensor.

  3. (Optional.) If desired, add filters to limit the assets to more specific criteria.
  4. Select Actions > Add to Asset Group.

    The Configure Dynamic Asset Group dialog box appears displaying the matching assets.

  5. Enter a name and description for the asset group.
  6. Click Save.

    The asset group is created. You can find it under Environment > Asset Groups.
