You can edit an existing 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 edit 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 'Edit Tag' permission and if not already assigned, then assign the modified role to your admin account.


  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > Devices & Users > Advanced > Tags.
  2. Identify the tag you want to edit from the listing.
  3. Select the pencil icon () next to the tag you want to edit.
    The Edit Tag screen displays.
  4. Edit the Name of the tag.
  5. Select Save.


The tag has been edited with a new name. Devices that were assigned with the previous tag have been updated with the edited tag.
