Cause

This is caused by a defect in the Automation engine and will be resolved in an upcoming release.

Please use the workaround until the fix is available

Resolution

The workaround to create an agent group/hostgroup for the integration agents is as follows:

1. In the HOSTG object on the Agent Group page, select the platform of CIT, the Software can be left blank, or choose the agent type (id: IICS, S3, SAPIBP, etc) , and set the Mode as needed

2. In the section Assigned Agents, type in the names of the agents with an asterisk on each line. For instance, AWA_NODE*

3. Save the changes to the HOSTG object

4. Scroll down to where Preview is listed below Available Agents and click on the Preview button. This Preview section now lists the agents that are members of this agent group.
