Adding Objects to Groups Manually

In this article

    You can manually add objects to groups in static categories — categories created with multiple-condition method and imported manually from a CSV file. When you map an object to a group, Veeam ONE adds the Manual selection condition to the group configuration. The name of an object acts as condition value. Mapped objects have static group membership, that is, they remain in the group until you manually reset categorization values. For more information on resetting, see Resetting Categorization Values.

    Tip:

    To add objects to groups within multiple categories in a batch, you can describe these objects and groups in a CSV file and import this file to Veeam ONE Client. For more information on importing categorization data from a CSV file, see Importing and Exporting Using CSV File.
