Matching criteria, which appear at the top of the Matching Criteria tab, are defined using the attributes of the managed elements. Each matching criterion has three fields: Name, Description, and Value.

  • Name identifies the attribute that is used as a matching criterion.
  • Description is the description of the attribute taken from the ICIM model.
  • Value is any combination of text, integers, and wildcards that is matched against the value of the attribute in the managed element. The Value field for a matching criterion is not case-sensitive.

If the value of a managed element’s attribute matches a matching criterion, the managed element is eligible to become a member of the group. When more than one matching criterion is specified, a managed element must match all criteria to become a member of the group.
