I wanted to created different "tiers" in open-audit to group them. How can I create them? The idea is to put device based on the highest importance. For example, if I wanted to group all devices that needs to have 100% uptime, I would group them as tier1.
Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.
You could indicate a device's importance by either using the Criticality attribute (only in Bulk Edit, but will reappear in device details in 1.8.2) or by making a custom field.
The create a group definition using this attribute.
Group definitions are in XML and can be found at /code_igniter/application/controllers/groups (reports are at /reports in the controllers directory).
I'd suggest grabbing a simple definition and examining the file. Computers is a good example.
The structure of the file is very similar to a query definition. We have a couple of pages on query definition on the wiki - https://community.opmantek.com/display/OA/Home, "How to create a Query definition" and "How to Create a Query".
I'd read through these and then apply the same logic to a group definition.
You can then import your XML definition at menu -> Admin -> Groups -> Import Group.
If it doesn't work, you can delete the group at menu -> Admin -> Groups -> List Groups, change your XML and try re-importing.
As a hint, your group_dynamic_select should look something like
