Create a new resource group at the domain level

A resource group is a named collection of (typically) related deployable resources, such as Java EE applications and the data sources, JMS artifacts, and other resources that applications use. Resource groups are a convenient way to group together Java EE applications and the resources they use into a distinct administrative unit within the domain. The resources and applications are "fully qualified" in that the administrator provides all the information needed to start or connect to those resources, including credentials for connecting to a data source and targeting information for Java EE applications. All the resources in or referenced by a resource group are targeted together (to the same target).

You can create a resource group at the domain level, or specific to a partition. You can create the resource group in two ways:

To create a resource group at the domain level:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, expand Environment and select Resource Groups.
  3. Click New.
  4. On the Create a New Resource Group page, enter the name that will identify your resource group.
  5. If you want to create the resource group based on an existing resource group template, select the resource group template from the drop-down menu.
  6. Select the target cluster or managed server for this resource group from the list of the targets in the current domain.
  7. Click OK.

After you finish

Creating a new resource group provides only the basic structure. You must now edit this resource group as needed. See Configure resource groups at the domain level for the steps to follow.

If you created the resource group from a resource group template, edit and override the resource group settings as needed.
