Create Tag Rules from Advanced Search Filters (Classic Interface)

Required User Role: Basic, Scan Operator, Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator

You can configure advanced search filters in the Assets dashboard, then save those filters as tag rules.

To create an asset tag rule from an advanced search filter in the classic interface:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Dashboards.

    Your default dashboard appears. If you have not set a default dashboard, the Vulnerabilities workbench appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Assets.

    The Assets dashboard appears, and displays the assets table.

  3. In the top navigation bar, click the Advanced search button.

    The Advanced Search window appears.

  4. Select the filters for your search.

  5. Click the button in the upper right corner of the window.

    The Create Tag window appears.

  6. To add a new category, type a category name in the Category box.


    To use an existing category for the tag, select a category from the drop-down box.

    Note: This field is required. If you want to create tags without individual categories, Tenable recommends that you add the generic category Category, which you can use for all your tags.

  7. Type a tag value in the Value box.

  8. (Optional) In the Category Description box, type a description of the tag category.

  9. (Optional) In the Value Description box, type a description for the new tag value.

  10. Verify that the elements of your advanced search filter are present as tag rules.
