HP Web Jetadmin - Manual versus Automatic Groups

Manual versus Automatic Groups
You can use groups to categorize devices based on common criteria. For example, you might use an IP addressing scheme to group devices based on the area where they are located. The ability to create manual device groups and the ability to use the Filter feature to create automatic device groups provide powerful tools for managing group membership.
In HP Web Jetadmin, groups can be set up with one of two different membership types:
  • Manual group: Each device is assigned manually to the group and remains in the group until you remove it.
  • Automatic group: Devices are automatically assigned based on specified filter criteria. You can create a variety of filters. For example, to understand how many color devices exist on a specific network, build the following filters. The first filter specifies the network. The second filter specifies the color capability.
    Property
    Function
    Value
    IP Address
    Contains
    15.5
    Color
    Equals
    Yes
    You can also edit this filter in advanced mode using the HP Web Jetadmin filtering syntax. These strings can have functions and values added and modified to affect the outcome of the filtering action. Automatic group membership is updated when one or more of the following occur:
    • The Automatic Group has had a filter (or filter change) applied.
    • New devices enter the system running a device discovery.
    • Device changes are realized by the system that either match or don’t match the filter criteria.
    • Devices are removed from the system by hiding or deleting them from the All Devices list.
