An Agent Group is a logical grouping of Agents. Agent Groups are typically set up to provide particular sets of contact center services.
The Agent Groups list shows the Agent Groups that are in your environment. It is sorted in a hierarchy by tenants, configuration units, sites, and folders. To view objects by a particular hierarchy, select the hierarchy type in the drop-down menu above the list.
Configuration Manager respects tenancy permission settings. You can access only those objects that you have been granted permissions and privileges to access.
You can filter the contents of this list in two ways:
- Type the name or partial name of an object in the Quick Filter field.
- Click the magnifying glass button to open the Tenant Directory filter panel. In this panel, click the Tenant that you want to select. Use the Quick Filter field in this panel to filter the Tenant list.
To select or de-select multiple objects at once, click the Select button.

Virtual Agent Groups
A Virtual Agent Group is similar to an Agent Group except that a Virtual Agent Group has no permanent members. Instead, an Agent becomes a member of a Virtual Agent Group if that Agent meets the criteria specified by the script. Agent membership in a Virtual Agent Group can change dynamically based on changes in the Virtual Agent Group criteria or changes in the object properties of the Agent.
When you click a Virtual Agent Group in Genesys Administrator Extension, you see its current member Agents.
