Group including "parent" entries

How can I create a group that includes only “parent” entries? That is, I need to include the entries used in @incollection, @inproceedings, etc. via xref/crossref fields.


Unfortunately, I don’t think it is currently possible to add entries based on “entrytype” to groups via automation.

The only way is to search for @incollection (or any other entrytype you want to include in your group), then select all entries and add them manually to a group.

I would suggest to open an issue on github to “add entries to groups based on entrytype”.

Thanks, I just did it (#9868)
