Tags

ESMC allows marking all relevant objects (computers, detections, tasks, installers, policies, notifications, licenses, etc.) with user defined tags, which can be further used for enhanced filtering and search. Tagging is integrated natively in all major screens of ESMC Web Console.

Tags are user defined key words (labels) that you can add to different objects to make them easier for grouping, filtering and finding. For example, you can assign a tag 'VIP' for your relevant assets and quickly identify all objects that are associated with them.

Tags can be created and assigned manually by the user. MSP objects are tagged automatically with the customer name.

Tags pane

You can see the existing tags in the Tags section visible on the bottom left side of the ESMC Web Console menu screen:
