CMDB groups

A CMDB group is a collection of CIs that lets you apply CI actions collectively to all the CIs that are members in the group. For example, a CMDB CI Lifecycle Management API can use a CMDB group scriptable API to retrieve the group's list of CIs, and then apply a CI Lifecycle Management action collectively to all the CIs.

Group type

A CMDB group is configured with a group type. If a CMDB group is set with the Health group type, then the CIs in the group can be monitored by CMDB Health, and the aggregated health is reported for the group as a whole in the CMDB group view dashboard. For example, you can monitor health only for CIs in a specific location.
