About groups

In Datto RMM, groups are used to group specific devices or sites in situations where you cannot or choose not to use filters. Sites can be grouped at the account level, while devices can be grouped at both the account and site level. Groups can be used as the target for monitors, reports, and jobs.

Similarly to filters, groups work independently of sites. This means that you can group devices from many sites together. However, as opposed to filters, groups are static, which means that adding or removing devices or sites to or from groups is a manual activity that is carried out in the web interface. Also, groups cannot be shared with other security levels within the account.

There are three types of groups within Datto RMM:

Name Definition Access Path
Device Groups Devices grouped at account level Sites > Device Groups
Site Groups Sites grouped at account level Sites > Site Groups
Site Device Groups Devices grouped at site level Sites > select a site > Site Device Groups
