Summary
The SMS server uses named resources to facilitate grouping and unique identification of resources referred to by various features in SMS. Name resources are similar to aliases and named resource groups are similar to groups of aliases, like an email distribution list. SMS supports, and in some cases requires the creation of, named IP addresses, VLAN IDs, and email addresses.

Example 1: when an SMS server is configured to deliver SMTP messages, the recipient list is required to be a Named Email Address Group.

Example 2: if you allow the creation of an external SMS database you can restrict access to that database instance to only those members included in a specific Named IP Address Group.

The SMS client refers or requires one or more of these name resource types in each of the following areas:

Devices: Exception Rules, Servers, Management Routes
Events: IPS Events (Source and Destination Addresses)
Profiles: Restrictions and Exceptions (Source and Destination Addresses)
Responder: Policies (Inclusions and Exclusions)

Access to named resources functionality is based on user roles. Users with SuperUser capabilities can create or edit named resources; users with SuperUser or Admin capabilities can view named resources; users with Operator capabilities do not have access to named resources.

Note: Named resources are used only on the SMS. In its communication with deviceS, the SMS sends only the constituent parts of a named resource (IP addresses, CIDR, and email address) to the device. The named resource itself is not sent.
