Smart Group Based on IP Range.

New Contributor III

I'm attempting to create a smart group based on an IP range. so say for example I want everything under 11.9.x.x in a group. Any suggestions?

Criteria: IP Address
Operator: Like
Value 11.9

Understand that once the device IP changes outside of the range the device will fall out of scope.
What are you trying to accomplish?

You would need to update the inventory whenever the IP changes, otherwise your SG will always be out of date and the scope wrong...

Hi @GiveEmHelms ,
If you are not already, I'd look into utilizing Network Segments in Jamf Pro. You can set a IP ranges and even assign them to different buildings or departments.


When you create a policy, you can select All Computers (Or another Smart Group) and then limit it to a selected Network Segment.


While Network Segments are not part of Smart Group criteria, you could associate the Network Segment with a Building or Department and create Smart Groups with Building or Department as your criteria. Just be sure to Override in Inventory if you select this approach:
