I have numerous global collections in Spectrum that are now show up in CAPC as part of the All Groups>Inventory>Data Sources>Spectrum Infrastructure Manager>All Spectrum Global Collections> Group Name.  However while Spectrum does display the devices within the Global Collection, CAPC will just reference the group name but no devices. First question is why doesn't CAPC show  the devices within the group, and second I just cant seem to wrap my head around global collections in Spectrum and the creation of groups within CAPC.  All our CA sales rep could tell us was to create the groups in Spectrum and it with sync in CAPC and you're done  I don't want to go down the road of a bunch or duplicate groups or a bunch of confusion between Spectrum and CAPC.

 

Or is the groups/collection concept totally separate between Spectrum and CAPC and I can and SHOULD have distinct groups between the two? Which I suspect is the case but I'm just not sure.
