5.3 Policy Groups

A policy group consists of two or more policies. Creating policy groups eases administration efforts by letting you assign the group, rather than each individual policy, to devices and users. You can create a policy group with a single policy and then add policies to the group as and when required.

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click the Policies tab.

  2. In the Policies list, click New, click Policy Group to display the Basic Information page, then fill in the fields:

    Group Name: Provide a unique name for your policy group. The name you provide displays in the ZENworks Control Center interface.

    Folder: Type the name or browse to and select the folder that contains this policy group

    Description: Provide a short description of the policy group’s content. This description displays in ZENworks Control Center.

  3. Click Next to display the Add Group Members page. You can add any number of policies to the group. You cannot add other policy groups to the group.

    To add a policy:

    1. Click Add to display the Select Members dialog box.

      Because you are adding policies to the group, the Select Members dialog box opens with the Policies folder displayed.

    2. Browse for and select the policies you want to add to the group. To do so:

      1. Click next to a folder to navigate the folders until you find the policy you want to select.

        If you know the name of the policy you are looking for, you can also use the Item name box to search for the policy.

      2. Click the underlined link in the Name column to select the policy and display its name in the Selected list.

      3. (Optional) Repeat Step 3.b.a and Step 3.b.b to add additional policies to the Selected list.

      4. Click OK to add the selected policies to the group.

  4. Click Next to display the Summary page. Review the information and, if necessary, use the Back button to make changes to the information on the Summary page.

  5. (Conditional) Select Create as Sandbox, if you want to create the sandbox version of the policy.

  6. Click Finish to create the policy group now, or select Define Additional Properties to specify additional information, such as user assignment, device assignment, and which members the policy group is a member of.
