Considerations for Tags with Rules

You can create an automatic tag from either the

Automatic Application evaluates assets against tag rules in the following situations:

  • When you add a new asset (via scan, connector import, or leveraging the API), evaluates the asset against your tag rules.
  • When you create or update a tag rule, evaluates your assets against the tag rule.

    Note: When you create or edit a tag rule, may take some time to apply the tag to existing assets, depending on the system load and the number of matching assets.

  • When you update an existing asset, re-evaluates the asset and removes the tag if the asset's attributes no longer match the tag rules.

Manual Application

If you manually apply a tag that has been configured with rules, excludes that asset from any further evaluation against the rules.
