Similar to other constructs used for inventory management and orchestration, device groups in the Itential Automation Platform are a collective association of device ids. Other API calls can use these groups to manage various workflow operations based on a user defined association.
On the Device Groups page, the card view is similar to the Devices page with a layout of cards showing the current groups. Of note, there is an empty Create card that allows you to create a new group with a custom name. Click the plus (+) sign to open an inline form. Once a new device group is created, it is added to a searchable list. Last, since all device groups can be edited, they can be selected for batch actions.
