The attributes of the target class associated with the group define a group’s matching criteria. Each matching criterion has the following fields:
Name identifies the name of the target class attribute.
Description is the description of the target class attribute.
Value is the value of the target class attribute, which can be any combination of text, integers, and wildcards. The Value field for a matching criterion is not case-sensitive.
As an example of a matching criterion for target class UnitaryComputerSystem, if you specify Router for the Type attribute, only routers become members of the group; if you specify R1* for the Name attribute, only routers having names beginning with the string R1 become members of the group.
When a managed object matches a group’s target class and matches all of the attributes defined for the target class, the managed object becomes a member of the group.
