Group property of ActiveGate


Hi Team

How can we use the Group property of ActiveGate. Do you have any documentation for the same?

It looks like this property isn't used currently, but it seems like there are ongoing discussions currently on how this property will be used, whether it will be similar to host groups or something different. So keep your eyes and ears opened and maybe we will find out what its going to end up being soon 🙂


Thanks @Chad T. for the information. We are considering to use this to make it a group for Active gate like we have host group. Anyway will wait for the update.

@Pawandeep S. Feel free to mark the answer as correct and award point as you see fit 🙂

Hello! It's also available as configuration and installation parameters. See the group flag in ActiveGate configuration. It doesn't do anything special at the moment, but will 🙂

Defines the ActiveGate group to which the ActiveGate belongs. An ActiveGate can belong to only one group. The name of an ActiveGate group is a string of alphanumeric characters, hyphens (-), underscores (_), and dots (.). Dots are used as separators, so you must not use a dot as the first character of a group name. The length of the string is limited to 256 characters. Currently, an ActiveGate group can be used as a means of logical grouping. In future releases, you'll be able to use it to perform bulk actions on your ActiveGates, such as managing extensions running on ActiveGates.
