Assigning Packages

Scroll Prev Top Next More

Packages need to be assigned before they will be used by a computer. You can assigned to the following:


All computers (= global assignments)

One or more groups

One or more computers


The EventSentry management console lets you assign packages either by right-clicking the actual packages, or by right-clicking the group or computer objects. This gives you more flexibility when configuring and working with packages.



Packages can also be assigned automatically, either depending on one or more installed service(s), or depending on the operating system of the monitored host.

Right-click the "Computer Groups" container and select "Assign Package(s) ...". From this dialog you can toggle the Global flag for more than one package at one time.
