Custom Computer group from Analysis results

(imported topic written by sinucus)

I’m not sure if I should have posted this in this one or customization. Anyway…

I wrote a custom Analysis which looks for a specific file and specific contents. Half of my computers report as True, the other False. I’d like to create a custom computer group based on that result. When I look at the dropdown selection on Automatic Computer Groups, there are only about 30 or options, none of which are my Analyses. Any ideas?

Unfortunately you can’t use an analysis to create a group. You have 2 options:

  1. You will have to copy that relevance that is in the analysis into a Global Property. “Tools | Manage Properties” It will then show up as an option in the pull down menu.

  2. You will copy the relevance and when you create a new automatic groups, you’ll see one of the options at the top is “relevance expression” Copy it there.

Excellent! That is exactly what I needed, thanks.
