Group Actions in RMM

RMM offers a set of group actions that can be applied to your users' computers with flexible configuration and settings.

Note that group actions (except legacy) require the RMM Agent version 1.4 or later installed on target computers

To create and configure a new group action, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the Management Console.
  2. In the Computers menu, select Remote Management.
  3. To the upper right, click RMM Group Actions.

Proceed with the group action wizard.

  • Install software
  • Uninstall software

Click Next.

Select Computers

Select computers to apply the group action. Use the search field to filter the computers. You can search by the company name, operating system, computer name, or software installed on target computers.

You can select computers that are offline at the moment of selection. The action, in this case, will be applied as these computers come online.

Perform Group Actions

As you selected computers to apply the group action, select the action. An example below shows the group script execution from the script library, so the layout of this step is different depending on the action selected on the first step of this wizard.

Schedule Tasks

Note that if you select the 'No Schedule' option, the group action will be applied to computers that are offline at the moment of the group task creation as they come online

If required, select the period of the group action execution. You can set the following periods:

As you selected the required period, specify the time of the group action execution.

When you specify the time for the group action execution, remember than system time of the instance the RMM Agent is installed

Click Create.

Enter the 2FA code to approve the action, click Verify.

If you selected the Run Once option, you will be provided with the report of the group task execution in real-time. Click on the specific computer to view the detailed information on the group task execution.
