Issue/Introduction

This change is not allowed in the UI (Group Type drop down is greyed out after creation) so it is recommended to create a new static group with the same criteria. 

 

In particular scenarios, it might be needed to change an Operator Console Dynanic Group from Dyanmic to Static. 

Environment

Release : UIM 20.4 

Cause

Guidance

Resolution

/////////Change Group from dynamic to Static//////////////////////

1. Stop nis_server probe
2. Copy the grp_id correspondent to the dynamic group that we are going to change from Dynamic to Static. 

Execute: 

update CM_GROUP set grp_type = 0, criteria = NULL where grp_id = '??'

3. Start nis_server probe

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

These steps will turn a dynamic group into static. 

The members of the dynamic group at the time this update is executed will be the static members of the modified group. 

Additional Information

It is recommended to create a new group instead of executing an update statement on a production environment. So only apply these steps if creating a new group is not feasible and check with UIM support for any questions.
