Recently, we upgraded from lms 2.5 to lms 2.6. Everything is working except when we go in Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management.

Before (in lms 2.5), we had 4 folders grouping the devices, one for each application (DFM, RME, Common Services, Campus). Now (in lms 2.6), all the User Defined Groups from each application are combined into one. Therefor, we have the same groups repeated twice.

Does anyone know how to make the folders display according to the application they were created in?

You can configure some of the device selector settings under Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Selector Settings > Group Customization. However, collapsing the user-defined groups is something that just happens automatically in certain device selectors. Others (e.g. the RME Baseline selector) will separate them out by application.

The way I've overcome this little feature is to just define your user groups just in Common Services... They are available to all the other applications (the ones that do...IPM doesn't ) Define them once and blow away the local application definitions. That way you get a consistant user interface.
