Target groups refer to the set of devices on which particular Privilege Manager rules are applied. By default, there is one target group that includes all devices. You can also build target groups that direct rules to a broad or narrow subset of devices, or even to a single device. Target groups can be based on Active Directory domains, organization units, groups, and single agents or devices. They can also be built from Azure Active Directory tenants, groups, and single agents or devices.
During your initial Privilege Manager setup, you create target groups by choosing devices. After defining your default Privilege Manager configuration, you can view, add, edit, and delete the target groups that will follow your management rules on the Target Groups page. This is also where you can edit client settings, including passwords, associated with a target group.
To view target groups in your Recast Management Server, navigate to Privilege Manager > Configuration > Target Groups.
The table lists each target group and its priority level. The list is searchable, and can be sorted by table headings. You can also export the list to a CSV file.
Click on a target group that doesn't include all devices to view details about the selected target group.
- Actions available for the target group (edit and/or delete)
- Type of target group (user group or device group)
- Name of groups that belong to the target group
To add a target group, click Add Target Group on the Target Groups page. This is also where you can add a target to the group, and edit or delete targets included in the target group.
To edit a target group, click the Edit icon to the right of a target group name. The default target group that includes all devices cannot be edited.
