Create a Smart Group from an Inventory Query (Report)


Smart group creation in FIleWave has always been a duplicated effort if you wanted a smart group that was identical to an inventory query (report) that already existed.  This duplication of effort was inefficient.


With version 14+ of FileWave, you can now directly create a new smart group from an existing inventory query. (and the crowds cheered!)


Creating the smart group is easy:

  • Right-click the Inventory Query you want to "copy" to a smart group
  • Choose "Create Smart Group"
  • Pick the destination where you want your smart group created

The newly created smart group will have no direct associations (deployments) assigned to it, but if you place it underneath a group that does have associations, the smart group will inherit them.

See example below:
