You can delete a user-defined security tag.
About this task
You may want to delete a security tag if the function or environment of the virtual machine changes. For example, if you have a security tag for Oracle databases, but you decide to use a different database server, you can remove the security tag so that firewall rules that apply to Oracle databases will no longer be run against the virtual machine.
