Using the Device Commands

Figure 1. Using the device command menu

After you select a group from the Device Tree, a list of the Security Agents in the group appears to the right in a table. The menu bar on top of the table contains the commands you can use to manage the Security Agents. Depending on the type of group you selected, some commands are only available in specific group types or may be disabled.

Use the search bar on top of the Devices screen to search for endpoints using names, labels, or IP addresses.

Tip:

To search for endpoints within a network, you can type parts of an IP address. For example, searching for "192" would return all IP addresses with "192" in it and "192." would only return all IP addresses starting with "192". However, wildcards and special symbols (*, +, (, ), -, &) cannot be used to search for endpoint names.
