You can assign a tag (or multiple tags) to one or more devices allowing you to identify them without using notes, profiles, policies, or giving the devices special friendly names. Assigning multiple tags to multiple devices saves time.

You can configure the maximum number of devices you are allowed to assign or unassign tags by navigating to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Devices & Users > Advanced > Bulk Management and scroll down to the Assign/Unassign Tag option.

Prerequisites

You must have the correct permissions to assign a tag to multiple devices. You can check on these permissions by viewing all the assigned resources (or permissions) of an admin role, modify the role with the 'Device Bulk Management assign Tags' permission and if not already assigned, then assign the modified role to your admin account.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Devices > List View.
  2. Select the check box of each device you want to assign a tag to.
  3. Select More Actions and then select Manage Tags.
    The Manage Tags page displays with multiple pieces of information. It confirms the number of devices selected from list view, it displays the currently assigned tags, and all the tags available to assign. You can also use the search text boxes in the upper-right corner of the Manage Tags page to enter search parameters for tag labels.
  4. Select the tags you want to assign to all the selected devices.
    You can select more than one tag. You can also assign some tags while unassigning others in the same step.
  5. Select Save.
