Required User Role: Scan Operator, Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator
You can create a tag that you can manually apply to assets, or you can create a dynamic tag that Tenable.io automatically applies to assets using tag rules that you set. For more information, see Tag Format and Application in the Classic Interface.
To create a tag in the new interface:
In the upper-left corner, click the button.
The left navigation plane appears.
In the left navigation plane, click Settings.
The Settings page appears.
Click the Tagging widget.
The Tags page appears.
In the upper-right corner of the page, click the Create Tag button.
The Create Tag page appears.
- Click the Category drop-down box.
In the Add New Category box, type a category.
As you type, the list filters for matches.
From the drop-down box, select an existing category, or if the category is new, click Create "category name".Note: You can create a maximum of 100 categories for your Tenable.io instance.
(Optional) In the Category Description box, type a description of the tag category.
In the Value box, type a tag value.
For example, if the category is Location, type Headquarters. Tag values cannot include commas.
(Optional) In the Value Description box, type a description for the new tag value.
(Optional) Apply the tag automatically based on rules:
- Click the Rules toggle to enable the rule settings.
In the match drop-down box, do one of the following:
- Click Match All to apply the tag only if an asset meets all of the tag rules you create.
- Click Match Any to apply the tag if an asset matches any of the tag rules you create.
In the rule drop-down boxes, select an asset attribute and operator, then type a value for that attribute.
For example, if you want to automatically tag any Windows assets, select Operating System and contains, then type Windows.
(Optional) To add another tag rule, click the Add button.
Note: You can add a maximum of 1,000 rules per individual tag.
- (Optional) To see the number of assets that match your rules, click Calculate affected assets.
(Optional) Edit the list of assets excluded from the tag:
In the Excluded Assets table, click the check box next to any previously-excluded asset that you now want to include in dynamic tag evaluations.
The action bar appears at the bottom of the page.
In the action bar, click the button.
A confirmation window appears.
Tenable.io re-evaluates the asset and applies the tag to the asset if the asset attributes match the tag's current rules.
Tenable.io creates a tag. If you enabled tag rules, Tenable.io evaluates existing assets and automatically applies the tag to assets that match the tag rules.
Note: When you create a tag rule, Tenable.io may take some time to apply the tag to existing assets, depending on the system load and the number of matching assets.
