Groups are the foundation of all maps. Creating a new group creates a map. Flow sending devices that are not assigned to a map are placed in Ungrouped. There are two types of maps:

  • Plixer: these maps are entirely local to the Scrutinizer server, do not require any internet access.
  • Google: Useful for displaying network devices geographically.


  • Flow devices can be added to more then one group/map.
  • Flow devices added to groups are removed from Ungrouped.
  • Membership: use this to add devices and objects to the group.
  • Pass up map status: use this to pass the status of any down devices in a lower map up to parent map.
  • Permissions can be set on Group visibility. More details regarding the permissions can be read about under Usergroup Permissions
