We are using CiscoWorks software to deploy new configuration to our network devices.  Because our environnement is mixed about version of network devices we have to create a new netconfig job for each device model, because in some plate-forme configuration option, syntax maybe different of each other.

When I create a new netconfig job with my username under "device type groups|switch and Hubs" I have a list there of all plate-forme we have in our production environnement managed by CiscoWorks software.  I know thoses group was'nt define by on of us and thoses are define by default in CiscoWorks software, but they are hiden by default per user basic.

We have a new one in our team, I had created his user name and password, but I can find the option where I can asked to make visible to him plate-form device type group as I have in my user configuration.

Also, is it possible to copy private define group to an other user without to make thoses as public ?

Thanks a lot !

The System Defined platform groups are always visible to all users.  However, if you have created a custom group, and made it private, then it will only be visible to you.  You must set its access type to Public for others to be able to see it.

is a view of what I have with my user

but in his profile he is only see

Device type Groups

     + Routers

     + Switches and Hubs

     + Wireless

if he clic on the plus sing to develop group "Switches and Hubs" he see all switches and hub managed by CiscoWorks software.  I know He did not create Cisco Catalyst 2912 XL Switch and Cisco Catalyst 2924 XL Switch group in my profile.  I know we have to modify an option in CiscoWorks per user basic to view those group, the person who where that option should be modifiy is currently in vacation, but he will need that option enable before our specialist will be back !

Thanks a lot !

Ah, you need to go to Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Selector Settings > Group Customization, and check "Show Series Groups and Show Model Groups.
