Create a Tag (Classic Interface)

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

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.

To create an asset tag:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Settings.

    The About page appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Tags.

    The Tags page appears.

  3. In the upper-right corner of the page, click the Create Tag button.

    The Create Tag window appears.

  4. Configure a category:

    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.
  5. Type a tag value in the Value box. For example, if the category is Location, type Headquarters. Tag values cannot include commas.

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

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

  8. Click Create.
