Adding service sets

After you have added services, you can organize them into logical groups— service sets—to simplify management activity and reporting for services with attributes in common.

To add a service set:

  1. In the Admin Portal, click Resources, then Services to display the list of Windows services and scheduled tasks.
  2. In the Sets section, click Add to create a new set.
  3. Type a name for the new set, an optional description, and select whether group membership is manual or dynamic.

    For manual sets, you can specify permissions for both the set itself and the members of the set. For dynamic sets, you can only specify permissions on the set.

  4. Identify the members of the set in one of two ways.

    • If set membership is Dynamic, type the SQL statement to execute to identify set members in the Query field. For example, if you want to add a set for the Windows service with a type that starts with win, you could type a SQL statement like this:

      select id from subscriptions where type like 'win%'

    • If you select Manual, click Members, then click Add to search for and select the services to add as members.
  5. Click Save.
