Use attributes to label and group your deployed agents in ways that are meaningful to your organization. You can assign attributes to your agents when initializing the installation process.
Agent attributes will appear as asset tags when those assets are brought into InsightVM.
Attributes must be assigned via the command line installation method.
Your custom attributes can contain the following characters:
- Upper and lowercase characters
- Equal signs
If you want to specify multiple attributes for a single agent, separate each with a comma.
Attribute specification varies by installer according to the operating system of your endpoint:
Mac and Linux
For Mac and Linux assets, modify the standard install command with the
--attributes option. List your attributes inside the quotation marks:
1sudo ./agent_installer.sh install_start --attributes "one,two_and,three"
For Windows assets, modify the standard install command with the
CUSTOMATTRIBUTES option. List your attributes inside the quotation marks:
1msiexec /i agentinstaller-x86_x64.msi CUSTOMATTRIBUTES="one,two_and,three"
