    Create Groups & add devices

    Groups consists of a list of devices. They are defined using a tag key:value pair. You can create groups with your own, customizable types and parameters. For example, you can have a set of groups based on model of robots, another set of groups based on customer and another based on build pipeline. Each of these types of groups are represented as a tag key. The tag value represents each of the groups. 

    From the burger menu select Settings ⇒ Groups  ⇒ Add Group
    1. Choose a Group name that represents this group of devices. This name can be changed anytime.
    2. Choose the Group type (tag key) and the corresponding tag value. 
    3. Choose devices that you want to select in this group
