After you have created tags, you can apply them as metadata to objects in the vCenter Server inventory.


  1. Browse to the object in the vSphere Client inventory.
  2. Right-click the object and select Tags and Custom Attributes > Assign.

    To filter the tags that are displayed, select a category from the Categories drop-down menu.

  3. Select a tag from the list and click OK.

    You can later use the same process to remove a tag.
