You can group in a collection folder CVDs that share a logical relation to other CVDs. You can use the collections to update their policies, set drivers, or perform an action on the device such as restarting the device or synchronizing the device with the Mirage server.

For example, you can aggregate all CVDs of users in the marketing department to a folder under a collection called Marketing. Then you can perform updates on the CVDs that all the Marketing CVDs share all at once.

Horizon Mirage supports static and dynamic collections. You manually assign CVDs to a static collection, while CVD assignments to dynamic collections are calculated based on predefined filters every time an operation is applied to a collection.

A CVD can be a member of multiple collections. If different base layers or policies are applied to different collections and a CVD belongs to more than one, the last change applied takes effect.

You can add a static collection folder to the Collections node, to which you can add CVDs manually.

You can move CVDs to existing collection folders to organize them in logical groupings.

You can add a dynamic collection. CVD assignments to the dynamic collection are calculated based on predefined filters every time an operation is applied to the collection. You can define an unlimited number of rules for a dynamic collection.

You can use Active Directory (AD) to add a dynamic CVD collection. You can add CVDs to the collection by Active Directory group, organizational unit, or domain. You can create a filter for multiple Active Directory elements, for example, filter CVDs whose users belong to the Human Resources AD group or to the Marketing AD group.

You can use the Edit Collection to modify the collection properties, add or remove a CVD, or manage the CVDs in the collection.

In the Collections tab of the Horizon Mirage Web Manager, you can manage the CVDs that are assigned to the collection.

You can manage the CVD by performing tasks on the CVD you selected from the CVD in the collection or from the general search function.
