You can unassign a tag from multiple objects simultaneously. However, this feature is available only for virtual machines.


  1. With admin privileges, log in to NSX Manager.
  2. Click Inventory > Tags.
  3. Next to that tag that you want to edit, click the vertical ellipses, and click Edit.
  4. In the Assigned To column, click the number of virtual machines that are assigned this tag.
  5. Click the X icon for each virtual machine that you want to unassign this tag.
    • You can do a bulk unassignment of a tag on a maximum of 1000 virtual machines at one go.
    • When a tag is unassigned from all objects, the tag is deleted automatically from the inventory after five days.
  6. Click Apply, and then click Save.
