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.
The ID of the group is made up of three different parts, described below.
The different parts are separated with dots.
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
This is a description of the group. It's hard to give any definitive guidelines on how descriptive it should be but it should be easy to understand what the group is used for. The description should end with Group.
The type of element/workflow. This should be Class.
Below are some examples of group IDs.
Group description: Application Servers
Group description: Servers Without Indexing Service
The group display name is made of the following parts.
The different parts are separated with spaces.
|Prefix||This is used to easily filter the groups created in-house and should be the same for all groups.|
