Hi @Tanvir,

Apologies for the delay in a response - take a look at some of the PropertySources we ship with the product - if they're not in your account you should be able to pull them down from the repository. Here's an example of the underlying code for the Domain Controllers PropertySource, which looks for the "NTDS" service to be running, and then adds a category to the device (which you can then use to group the devices together.) So you could clone this, change the service it looks for, and change the category it assigns...

import com.santaba.agent.groovyapi.win32.WMI
import com.santaba.agent.groovyapi.win32.WMISession

// Set hostname
def hostname = hostProps.get('system.hostname');

// Form the full query.
def wmiQuery = "Select name,state from Win32_Service Where Name = 'NTDS'";

    // using default namespace
    def session = WMI.open(hostname); 
    def result = session.queryFirst("CIMv2", wmiQuery, 10); 

    // Did we get anything?
    if (result.STATE == "Running")
        // Yes, apply the properties
        println 'system.categories=MicrosoftDomainController'

catch(Exception e)
    println e
    return 1;

// Exit by returning 0.
return 0;
