Scenario:
A user has raised an inquiry if the VARA.BACKEND allows the use of host groups.

The documentation had stated this:

PromptSet variables can be used in the following fields of the reference variable's Variable tab:
...
VARA.BACKEND: host, login, command

Question:
It is unclear if a host group can be used in the Host field.
Is it possible to put a host group in it and if yes, how?

Answer:
No, it is not possible to put a Host group in the Vara.backend.

According to this documentation,

To access the source computer, you must select an agent and a Login object (identical procedure as for the Filelist variable type).

The Filelist procedure states this:

The OS agent that is used to access the specified directory. You cannot select an agent group.
