Blueprint Groups


A Blueprint Group is a useful way to organize numerous Blueprints that share a common trait (e.g. device type, application type, vendor). User Groups can also be assigned permissions to access specific Blueprint Groups, and the Blueprints they contain or the features driven by Blueprint Group / Blueprint selections.

List View


FireScope Configuration Administrator or higher can find the Blueprint Group List under Configuration > Blueprint Groups > List. Each Blueprint Group will have some number of Blueprints contained in it.

List Context Menus

In the far-right column of the List View, there is a context menu for each Blueprint Group with the following items:

  • Edit Blueprint Group - Navigates to the Blueprint Edit Form.
  • View Blueprints - Navigates to the Blueprint List, pre-filtered to this Blueprint Group.
  • Delete Blueprint Group - Prompts with a modal-confirmation to delete the Blueprint Group.
