Nebula offers a convenient way to manage and organize your endpoints using groups and policies. Groups are beneficial if you have many endpoints or servers. On the other hand, policies are responsible for defining the security and software configurations applied to your endpoints. Keep in mind a group of endpoints can only have one policy applied at a time, so you need to create multiple groups and policies to accommodate different endpoint configurations.
Default group and policy
Nebula comes with a Default Group and Default Policy to help you get started. The Default Group is where endpoints are automatically placed after installing the endpoint agent. This group is assigned the Default Policy, which uses our recommended protection settings. For a list of the default settings, see Nebula default policy.
Create policies and groups
You can create more policies with different settings if you have devices such as servers that need different settings. Since a group can only be assigned a single policy, your endpoints must be separated into different groups.
For example, automatic reboots and software updates are enabled in the default policy. This setting should remain enabled for your workstations but disabled for your servers. You must create a separate group and policy to disable this setting for just the servers.
