About Hierarchy and Group Views
You require a way to administer and monitor devices in your network, which might be a complex organizational or geographical scheme. In
Management Center
, you can manage the devices in your network within a hierarchical structure.
Management Center
comes with a predefined structure for device management, as follows:
  • Location (Hierarchy)
    • World (Group)
      • France, Canada, Germany, and others (Subgroups)
  • Organization (Hierarchy)
    • Company (Group)
      • Finance, Sales, Legal, and others (Subgroups)
You can use these predefined hierarchies and groups, but if you must organize the devices in your network using different criteria, you can create your own hierarchies and groups. Then, create device groups and subgroups to logically represent the structure of your network. Click the gear icon to view and manage hierarchies. See Configure Hierarchy for Devices and Device Groups.
