Add a device tag

Device tags are user-defined labels that you can attach to a device. Tags can help differentiate devices in 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.

  1. Log into the Web UI on the Discover or Command appliance.
  2. Click Metrics and then click Devices in the left pane.
  3. Find a device and then click the device name.
    A protocol page appears, which displays traffic and protocol activity for the selected device.
  4. Select Overview in the left pane below the device name.
  5. In the Manage Device section in the upper right corner of the page, click Properties.
  6. Click the Tags tab.
  7. In the Add Device Tags section, click the drop-down list.
  8. Select a device tag from the list, or type to filter the list of device tags. If the device tag name does not exist, you can create a new tag by completing the following steps:
    1. Type a name for the new device tag. The label, New Tag, appears next to the new name.
    2. Press Enter.
  9. Click Save.
    You can remove a device tag from a device by repeating steps 1-4 and then selecting the red x icon next to the tag. To permanently delete a tag from the ExtraHop system, see Rename a device tag.
