Adding sensors, agents and networks to groups using hierarchy feature

Written by Mandar Ghogale
Updated over a week ago

Users can now make hierarchy configurations using the dashboard.
Please contact UXI support at to enable this feature from the backend. Once enabled, you will see a new menu option called “Groups” in the Settings menu. The legacy menu options are still present.

With the help of this hierarchy feature, you can:

  • Search sensors by group, serial, or name

  • Adjust the network columns using the filter

  • Add Sensors

  • View unassigned sensors (See when the sensor comes online, add networks for the sensor to test, click and drag a sensor into a group)

  • View and edit a group (see the current status and number of sensors in a group, rename groups, move groups under other groups)

  • View and edit sensors (rename the sensor, assign networks, click and drag the sensor to another group)

  • Add new groups (click and drag groups to parts of the hierarchy)

  • Drill down to sensor information (See where the sensor is on the map, view MAC addresses, and identify what networks are being tested)

Furthermore, once you begin to use the dashboard for this configuration, you must not use the legacy excel spreadsheet going forward. In addition, you should limit the number of levels to a maximum of 4 levels.

Hierarchy-Based Access for Restricted Read-Only Users

Now you can assign users to be restricted read-only to groups of hierarchy instead of legacy groups.

NOTICE: For dashboards using the sensors and groups alpha feature already, we attempted to migrate your restricted read-only users to the proper hierarchy group automatically on July 13th. However, in some cases, we will not be able to migrate these restricted read-only users and therefore, these users will not be assigned to any group and will not see any sensors after July 27th, 2023. A dashboard admin will need to review and update the user permissions.

Known limitations:

  1. If you want to assign specific groups to run specific tests, legacy groups are still used for the test configuration.
