You can create a new device tag for use in the console. Tags allow you to easily identify a specific device at a glance without requiring a device profile, smart group, or compliance policy and without requiring the creation of a note.


You must have the correct permissions to create a tag. You can check on these permissions by viewing all the assigned resources (or permissions) of an admin role, modify the role with the 'Create Tag' permission and if not already assigned, then assign the modified role to your admin account. For details, see the topic View the Resources of an Admin Role.


  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Devices & Users > Advanced > Tags.
  2. Select the Create Tag button.
    The Create Tag screen displays.
  3. Enter the Name of the tag. The selection of the tag name is what makes the tag useful or not. Select a name that can be used to identify a device at a glance.
  4. Select the Type of tag you want: Device, General, or Video.
  5. Select Save.


The device tag is now available to be assigned to a device.

What to do next

Navigate to Devices > List View and select one or more devices to assign this tag to.
