Managing tags

Tags are arbitrary string key-value pairs that can be attached to the Domains, Systems and Business Drivers in TrueSight Capacity Optimization. The keys are called tag names and the values are called tag values. Tags enable you to search for entities, and create entity filters that will list all the entities matching a particular tag pattern. You can group multiple tags of same type using a tag type. For example tags for operating systems can be grouped using OS as the tag type. You can create a tagging rule to automatically add tags to the required entities.

You can use Administration > Tag Management to perform the following tasks:

  • View and manage available tag types
  • Create and manage custom tag types
  • View and activate or deactivate the available tagging rules
  • Create and manage custom tagging rules

You can add tags to the required entities using any one of the following workflow:
