Add Users and Groups

The Contacts node in the Navigator pane contains the Users and Groups sub-nodes. Create and maintain Users and Groups for notification purposes.

Note:  At least one User is required for SentryOne to send notifications. For notifications, we recommend that you use Groups with nested Users
