Create a Tag Rule

Required Vulnerability Management User Role: Scan Manager or Administrator

Required Permission: Can Edit, Can Use permission for applicable asset tags.

When you create or edit a tag to apply automatically, you must create and apply rules to the tag via tag rules filters. You can create a tag rule in either Basic or Advanced mode.

Caution: If you create a tag rule in Basic mode and then switch to Advanced mode, the rules you created appear in the Advanced mode format. However, if you switch from Advanced mode to Basic mode, removes all rules from the rules section.

Note: When you create a tag from the Tagging page, you can select from a list of generic asset filters to create tag rules. If you want to create a tag based on filters that are specific to certain asset types, Tenable recommends that you create a tag from the Assets page, where you can select additional filters that are specific to each asset type.
