Groups are useful in managing and organizing Accounts. The account attributes can  contain Hostname, Company Information, Department, Accountname, Manager or based on system-defined tag. To add accounts to this group, specify the desired attribute-type, for example, account authentication type. In the Input field, enter attribute-value to be compared to, for example, Sectona authentication. Choose from the available operators{EQUAL TO(=), NOT EQUAL TO(!=) or LIKE} for comparison. All the Accounts will be compared to the specified attribute using the chosen operator and the ones falling under the defined condition will be automatically grouped.
