Create a device tag

Tags are user-defined labels that you can attach to a device. Tags can help differentiate devices on the ExtraHop system that share a common attribute or characteristic. You can then search for devices or create dynamic device groups based on the device tag.

Note:You cannot rename a device tag after it is created.
Note:You can also automate this task through the REST API.
  1. Log in to the ExtraHop system through https://<extrahop-hostname-or-IP-address>.
  2. Click the System Settings icon and then click Tags.
  3. Click Create.
  4. In the Name field, type a unique name for the tag.
  5. (Optional): To immediately add the new tag to a device, complete the following steps:
    1. Click Select a device.
    2. Type a device name, IP address, MAC address, or hostname.
    3. Select the device from the search results.
      The device name appears in the window, indicating that the new tag will be added to this device.
  6. Click Save.
    The new tag appears in the Manage Tags window.
  7. Click Done to close the window.
    Tip:You can also add a tag from a Device Overview page. Find a device and then click the device name. From the Device Overview page, click Edit Properties, and then click Tags.
