Via the context menu of a view, you can assign on a one-off basis objects to devices  that you have filtered via the view. If you want to be certain that the object is assigned even to newly recorded devices that fulfill the view criterion, you can do this using an administrative task.

Using the same principle, you can assign objects to devices that you have filtered via a search.

To assign an object to a view result, proceed as follows:

  1. Create a corresponding view.
  2. Right-click on the view to open the context menu.
  3. Select Assign objects to the devices of the view... .

    The Assign objects window will open.
  4. Select the desired object from the left-hand column and move it to Selected objects on the right by clicking on .
  5. Click OK.
    The Update time window will open.
  6. Select Next Reboot or Now.
  7. Click OK.

Via Detach objects from the devices of the view..., you can undo the assignment of objects.

Options Assign objects to the devices of the view... and Detach objects from the devices of the view... are always active in the context menu if Automatically load amount and items is selected under Menu Bar > Misc > Settings > Views and Searches > Page Behavior > When opening a view result... . If one of the other parameters is chosen, the above options will only be active after clicking a button Load devices (or Search for hits > Load devices) in the content panel of the view.
