Considerations for Tags with Rules
You can create an automatic tag from either the
Tenable.io evaluates assets against tag rules in the following situations:
- When you add a new asset (via scan, connector import, or leveraging the Tenable.io API), Tenable.io evaluates the asset against your tag rules.
When you create or update a tag rule, Tenable.io evaluates your assets against the tag rule.
Note: When you create or edit 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.
- When you update an existing asset, Tenable.io re-evaluates the asset and removes the tag if the asset's attributes no longer match the tag rules.
If you manually apply a tag that has been configured with rules, Tenable.io excludes that asset from any further evaluation against the rules.
