Create an IPS Group



An IPS Group will organize IPS Points into an easily managed collection. The IPS Group will also allow you to define certain behavior based on events of the IPS Group. This article will guide you through the steps of creating a IPS Group.


  1. Log in and navigate to IPS Groups. Main Menu-> Setup-> System Setup-> IPS Group-> Create
  2. Use the  icon in the lower left side to create a new IPS Group.

    • Note: Using Retain will keep the field the same for subsequent configurations
  2. Select a Name for the IPS Group.
  3. Next, Configure the Initial IPS Group State, if needed, use our guide on IPS Group States to understand the different states of an IPS Group.

  2. The following Procedure fields can be configured to perform different action on IPS Group State.
