This article assumes that your ESMC user has the correct access rights and permissions to perform the tasks below.

  1. Open ESET Security Management Center Web Console (ESMC Web Console) in your web browser and log in.
  2. Click More Dynamic Group Templates.
  3. Select an existing dynamic group Template and click Edit Template to edit it, or click New Template to create a new dynamic group Template. In the following example, we will create a template for a dynamic group that contains computers without ESET endpoint solutions installed.

  1. Click Expression, select NOR (All conditions have to be false) from the Operation drop-down menu and click Add Rule. In addition to NOR, you can use the OR (at least one condition has to be true)NAND (At least one condition has to be false), and And (All conditions have to be true) operations to create custom expressions. An expression can contain multiple rules.

  1. Select has prefix from the drop-down menu and type ESET Endpoint into the blank field. This expression will recognize any application with a name that begins with ESET Endpoint.
  2. Click Finish when you are finished making changes. If you are editing a template associated with an existing dynamic group, ESMC will automatically recognize when a new computer meets the criteria defined in a Dynamic Group template and add it to the appropriate Dynamic Group.

    If this is a new template, create a dynamic group using the template you just created.
