Inventory View

The Inventory view allows you to see the watched status of any target within your environment. Access the Inventory view by double-clicking the Inventory node in the Navigator pane (Navigator > Configuration > Inventory).

SentryOne select Inventory in the Navigator pane

In the Inventory view, you can drag the column header to the top to group by that column. Other options are available in the context menu for the column headers for grouping, sorting, filtering etc.
