Merging Access Groups
If your administration requirements change or there is a realignment of your work processes, you can combine two or more Access Groups into one. Merging groups saves you time rather than creating a new larger Access Group that combines already selected options.
When merged, SolarWinds N-central combines all customers/devices and any group attributes into the new group. The new group includes all the selections from the selected groups.
- Click Administration > User Management > Access Groups.
- Click the check box next to the groups you want to merge and click Merge Access Groups.
- Enter a name and description for the new, merged group and indicate if you want to delete the current groups when making the new group.
- If you are merging customer access groups, to automatically include any new sites under a customer if added in the future, click Propagate to all new Customers/Sites .
- Click Save.
You can only customer groups with customer groups or device groups with device groups. Not a combination of both.
When you view the new Access Group, the combined customers/devices are highlighted to stand out from the other customers/devices in the list. If you chose to delete the previous Access Groups during the merge, they will no longer appear.
