Server groups allow you to organize servers according to common characteristics such as physical location, production / staging, or applicable security rules. When servers are in one or more groups, you can use CQL to search for a group of servers (either to set up triggers for them, or view activity and alerts from them).

Create a server group

To create a server group, just add a new server to it.

Delete a server group

To delete a group, just remove all the servers from it.


  • If a server is assigned to a group in its config.ini , the assignment will reappear in the web app after the server restarts or reconnects.

  • You can only add servers to groups via the config.ini . In order to remove them, use the web app. We will improve this feature in an upcoming release.

Server group names โ€” valid characters

Server group names may contain the following characters: 0-9 , a-z , A-Z , - , and _ .
