Tags Overview

ClearPass Device Insight uses tags to group devices together. In ClearPass Device Insight the following two types of tags are available: user tags and system tags. You can create user tags and the system automatically creates system tags.

User Tags

You can group several devices together by creating a user tag for the group of devices. After you have filtered devices using the Filters dialog you can create a tag from the filtered criteria information. The tag is added to each individual device in the group as an additional attribute. User tags are maintained using the Filters dialog.

You can also use user tags as filter criteria to view device information using the Filters dialog.

You can view the user tags associated with a device on the Device Details dialog.

For information on viewing tags, see Classified Devices - Device Details Overview
