You can create Edge-level grouping objects to limit the scope of objects to an Edge. Edge grouping objects differ from network grouping objects, which have a global scope and can be used across Edges and other objects.

For example, if you want to create an IP set (IP address group) for a specific Edge and ensure that this IP set is not available for reuse in other contexts, you can create an Edge IP set.

At the scope of an NSX Edge, you can create and manage the following grouping objects:
  • IP Sets
  • Services
  • Service Groups

To create Edge objects in the vSphere Web Client, select an Edge, and navigate to Manage > Grouping Objects.

For more information about working with IP sets (IP address groups), services, and service groups, see Network and Security Objects.
