Use Val Group tags for better management of Rule(s) Execution

Val Groups are like “labels” that allows you to organize your audits into categories. You can apply a Val Group label in order to categorize DvSum Audits the way you want them to be grouped. Val groups are like folders but unlike folders you can apply more than one Val Group label to a single audit and similarly an audit can belong to multiple Val Groups.

For instance, User1 wants to group together a few Audits he created by his own name. He can create a Val Group called “User1 Audits”. He can then sort the “Analyze Rules” grid by Val Group for easier view. Multiple labels can be attached for audits under “User1 Audits” label. For e.g. you want to group “User1 Audits” by source, then go ahead and add a Val Group “Source1”

Additionally, an administrator has the access to Batch Execution Under the Review tab on left navigation. He can execute multiple rules under the Val Group(s) with a single click.

How do you add Val Groups?

Add Test:

You can add Val Groups from “Add test” page when you are creating a new Audit. As the user starts typing the list of existing Val Groups appear, else you can create new when there are no matched results.


Mass Update:

On “Manage Rules” and “Analyze Rules” page, you have the option for Mass Update. Under the field Val Group, you can select from the existing list or type to create new.

How do I add/remove or edit Audits from a Val Group?

As mentioned above you can associate an audit with a Val Group while creating it but the more effective way of doing it is from Mass Update. On “Manage Rules/Analyze Rules” select single or multiple rules and click on More Actions >> Mass Update.


You get the following options regarding Val Groups:

  1. Add following Val Groups
  2. Replace existing Val Groups with following
  3. Remove following Val Groups
