You use security tags to define NSX edge gateway firewall rules and distributed firewall rules for data center groups with an NSX network provider type.

You can view all the security tags that are used within your organization.


Verify that your system administrator has published the Security tag edit right to your organization and that your role includes this right.


  1. In the top navigation bar, click Networking and then click Security Tags.
    The list of all security tags in your organization appears.
  2. To view the virtual machines to which a security tag is assigned, click the expand button on the left of the tag's name.
    A list of the VMs to which the tag is assigned appears. If you have no rights to view a specific VM to which a tag is assigned, this VM does not appear on the list.
