Renaming Groups

I have created custom groups that represent assets that aren't "tracked" in LS. I'm baselining a process in which to keep track of assets like Docking Stations (that LS can't see/detect) and making groups for them and their respective deployed locations/facilities.

I've so far added 100s of assets to these custom-named groups. As I progress, and some groups get added, I am re-thinking a few naming conventions for some of the Asset Group names.

My question (multi-part):
If I simply change the name of a group (of which many assets are already assigned), will the assets assigned to those re-named groups STAY in those groups, or will I have to re-add all the assets back to the newly-named groups? And, if they get 'booted' from the old name to be added to the new group, is there a way to NOT do it individually per asset?

For fear of looking for the "easy way out", I am also not looking to manually change groups one asset at a time if I can avoid it.

I don't have access to the SQL server to be able to run scripts directly into the database.

TIA

Hi,

You can rename static or dynamic groups in the GUI. Just click on their names and type a new name. This will not have an effect on the assets that are part of the group, they will remain part of the group.
