You would not want this - agents can only match one agent mapping at a time and this is how they know what configurations to pull and use when they connect to the server. If you are looking to group these agents/hosts in various ways I would look into using hostgroups, labels, or tags.
If you are asking if group 1 can have agents "server1.web" and "server1.api" while group two would only have "server1.web" and group 3 would only have "server.api", then the answer is no.
A single agent can only belong to a single agent group.
Here is our documentation for Agent Groups:
Let me know if I didn't understand your question right
Yes, the ideas was that Group 1 would get data from server1 (including both api and web) Group 2 would get data from server.web and Group 3 would get data only from server.api. Is this not allowed? Would it have any bad repercussions?
