Teams

Applies only to Fleet Premium

ℹ️  In Fleet 4.0, Teams were introduced.

In Fleet, you can group hosts together in a team.

With hosts segmented into exclusive teams, you can apply specific queries, policies, and agent options to each team.

For example, you might create a team for each type of system in your organization. You can name the teams Workstations, Workstations - sandbox, Servers, and Servers - sandbox.

A popular pattern is to end a team’s name with “- sandbox”, then you can use this to test new queries and configuration with staging hosts or volunteers acting as canaries.

Then you can:

  • Enroll hosts to one team using team specific enroll secrets

  • Apply unique agent options to each team

  • Schedule queries that target one or more teams

  • Run live queries against one or more teams

  • Grant users access to one or more

View teams

In the top navigation select "Settings" and then "Teams."

Create a team

Automatically adding hosts to a team

Hosts can only belong to one team in Fleet.

You can add hosts to a new team in Fleet by either enrolling the host with a team's enroll secret or by transferring the host via the Fleet UI after the host has been enrolled to Fleet.

To automatically add hosts to a team in Fleet, check out the "Adding hosts" documentation.

If a host was previously enrolled using a global enroll secret, changing the host's osquery enroll secret will not cause the host to be transferred to the desired team. You must delete the osquery/osquery.db file on the host, which forces the host to re-enroll using the new team enroll secret. Alternatively, you can transfer the host via the Fleet UI, the fleetctl CLI using fleetctl hosts transfer, or the transfer host API endpoint.

Transfer hosts to a team

Hosts can be transferred to a different team they've has been enrolled to Fleet.
