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 dedicated Event Groups tile opens the Event Groups panel. The list of Event Groups can be opened in view mode by users having at least the View events permission enabled.
