I wanted to group sensors according to their category (ping, disk space etc.) from different devices but i figured it's not possible. so i'm trying to group them using tags. Is there any way I can put these group of tags and place it in a map (dashboard).. showing the health of those group of sensors individually? need help pls.

Hi there,

Generally speaking, there is a "Tag Filter" option in a map's "Settings" tab that applies to certain objects like tables. What you need however sounds more like creating a library first with the particular sensors would be more what you need. Then you can intergrate the library in a map as described here.

Kind regards,
