Group naming

The naming of a group is a bit trickier since a group can be used for a lot of different things. A group is basically just a type of class but since they are used a bit differently the naming differs from the class type.

Group ID

The ID of the group is made up of three different parts, described below.

Group ID

The different parts are separated with dots.

Part Description
MPID Required.

This is the management pack ID. This must be included to make the group ID unique in the management group. To learn more about MPID, see Management pack naming
