12.2 The Tags Interface

The Tags interface lists the tags available in the system and allows you to manage the tags. You can perform text-refined searches to find the tags that you are looking for. The interface also provides options such as maintaining a list of favorite tags and searching tagged events.

As you mouse over a tag, you can see the icons available to manage the tag. The number next to each tag indicates the number of objects associated with the tag. For more information on creating new tags, see Creating a Tag.

The Tag icon is available in various parts of the Sentinel interface, which allows you to quickly add tags to the desired data collection objects such as event sources, event source servers, Collector Managers, Collector plug-ins, report templates, and report results. When you click the Tag icon, the Tags dialog box is displayed that allows you to select tags and to create new tags.
