Tags come either out-of-the-box in vScope or are defined by the user. User-defined tags gives you the power to include your IT organization’s tacit knowledge into vScope and let you build build customized analyzes around this information.
User-defined tags are either of the type Manual or Dynamic:
– Manual tags are like post-it notes that you stick to certain resources in your datacenter e.g. Notes or Tasks related to specific servers
– Dynamic tags are based on rules and gives you the opportunity to, based on a certain criteria, automatically tag your resources. E.g. site based on IP or Function based on server name.
After specifying the tagging rules – the Dynamic tags’ values can be defined in three different ways:
1. A fixed value
2. A value based on another tag
3. A value based on a tag from a related resource
