A tag is a user-defined, shared, short label that you use to classify, view, and conduct operations on objects such as applications, components, agents, and resources.
If you manage many objects, you can use tags to organize objects so that the user interface is easier to navigate. You can also use tags to simplify deployment operations. If you use application templates, assign tags to components so that you can easily add components to applications that you create from templates.
- Creating tags
As an administrator or user with appropriate permissions, you can define agent, application, component, and resource tags from the Tags tab.
- Adding tags to objects
Add tags to objects to simplify object management, to improve object sorting, and to facilitate task execution by tag.
- Grouping servers by using tags
You can use tagging to group target servers for organized deployments.
- Component tags and component resource tags
You can tag components while you work on the Components tab, or you can tag components while you work in the Resources tab. However, the tags that you associate with components in these two contexts behave differently. Furthermore, you can also include components in a resource by using the tags that are associated with components in the Component tab.
