The Group object’s attributes represent a collection of other objects and one or more of their attributes. This object provides the user with the ability to customize the organization of objects within the site. The Group object simplifies the exchange of information between objects by calling all members of the group at once. A group consists of any combination of object types. For example, you can use the Group object to monitor the temperature in different rooms throughout a floor of a building.

For general information on Metasys system objects, see Common Object Attributes.
