Application Groups

Application Groups are used to define logical groupings of applications.

Application Groups are assigned to Workstyles, so you must define Application Groups for all the applications you want to assign to a Workstyle.


The Application Groups landing page in EPM Policy Editor

When working with Application Groups, you can:

  • Create, edit, and delete application groups.
  • Change the name or description of the group.
  • Delete an application group when it is no longer required.
  • Copy an application group, and then edit the properties of the newly created group.
  • Copy application definitions from one group to another and from one policy to another.
  • View hidden application groups.
  • Use the search feature to find an application.

Add an Application to an Application Group

There are three ways to add an application to a group:

  • Application definitions: Create an application using the application definitions and properties.
  • Reports: Add an application on-the-fly from the Analytics page using the collected analytics.
  • Application templates: Provides a way to pick from a list of known applications.



Environment Variables

You can use the following environment variables in file path and command line application definitions.

To use the variables, enter the variable, including the % characters, into a file path or command line. EPM expands the environment variable prior to attempting a file path or command line match.
