When creating, copying, editing or just viewing unit group properties, you see a dialog with several tabs where group configuration is adjusted. The number of tabs can vary depending on your access rights (max — 4).
The name of a unit group must be between 4 and 50 characters which must not be forbidden.
The creator is the user on behalf of whom the group was created (displayed if the current user has at least minimal access to it).
Here you can see which account the unit group belongs to (if you have any access to this account). This property, as well as the creator, cannot be changed afterwards.
Add units to the group. On the left, there is a list of all available units. For the convenience of search, it is possible to use the dynamic filter. This filter works not only by name but also by phone number, unique ID, device type, fields, etc. On the right, there is a list of units in the group. To add a unit to the group, double-click on it or click Add. To remove a unit from the group, press Remove or double-click on the unit in the right column.
If you are editing an existing group, you are required to have the Edit ACL propagated items access right to this group to add/remove units. Otherwise, all units in both sections will be gray and you will not be able to move them.
In addition to the manual way to create groups, there is an automatic method that is available in the Wialon user interface. See Notification Action for details.
The required access rights: Manage access to this item to group; Manage user's access rights to users.
On the left, there is a list of users whose access rights can be controlled. Colored background indicates the users who already have some access.
Here you can read more about access granting.
To view this tab and change the icon of the group, the Change icon access right is required.
Image for the group can be selected from the set of standard icons (the Icon library button) or loaded from the disk (the Browse button).
The icon is used mainly to display the group in the Unit Groups list. However, it may also be used to display units that belong to this group. If a unit has a default icon, and a unit group which it belongs to has a non-default icon, then unit acquires the icon of this unit group. Here you can read more about icons.
The required access rights: View custom fields to view general custom fields; Manage custom fields to create, edit, and delete general custom fields; View admin fields to view administrative custom fields; Manage admin fields to create, edit, and delete administrative fields.
Here you can enter any additional information about the unit group. Information is entered in the form of fields: <field_name> — <field_value>. Enter a field name and its value and press the Add button. To delete a field, click Remove. Administrative fields (seen only by users with special access rights) are marked in the first column.
