Issue/Introduction

How do I move a Static or Dynamic Group from one Container Group to Another?

 

This was possible in USM.

How can we move static or dynamic groups to an other container? The parent field is greyed out in the "edit" group screen. 

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - OPERATOR CONSOLE

Cause

This feature is not available yet in UIM 20.3.x.

Resolution

The Ability of moving groups accross container groups will be implemented in a future Release of UIM. The expected ETA for this is ~March 2021.

In the meantime, the following workaround can be used to move groups from one container to another

 

-Deploy uimapi to the Operator Console robot as instructed here:

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/ca-unified-infrastructure-management-probes/GA/probe-development-tools/restful-web-services/uimapi-apis.html

-Open the swagger via the following URL:

http://<uimhost>/uimapi/swagger-ui.html 

-Run the following get against all groups to get the groupid and elementIds that need to move with the group

-Select ‘Try it Out’, then execute. The XML will be listed in the response body section similar to the following:

The result will show my original id (groupID) and the elements that listed under the group. You will also want to find the destination (parent) groupID that you will be sending this group and its elements to.

-Next run the following to change the group association

-sample input with the elements added, and the ‘move to’ new parent groupID

-execute the command
