Event Groups

Abstract

The event group management consists a set of panels that allow administrators to view, edit and delete event groups. Check out more details here!

An Event Group is a hierarchical structure used to group the event definitions. As hierarchical entities, the event groups can be nested, allowing the user to create complex event structures to fit every particular project.

The Event Groups allow the user to organise the following operations:

Viewing, filtering and refreshing the Event Groups list

The dedicated Event Groups tile, available in the Admin section of the Portal, opens the Event Groups panel.
