Application Tagging

Tagging allows you to group apps based on your unique requirements so that you can search for apps and find vulnerabilities within those apps.

Use tags to group applications together using the structure you want. For example, you may want to group apps based on whether they are on an intranet, public facing, or by the geographical region they service:

  • North America
  • South America
  • EMEA
  • APAC

You can see which tags have been applied to an app in the All Apps table and also in the header of the App page.

Tags applied to an app

Tag an app

You can tag an app from several locations:

  • Manage App drawer - You can optionally add tags.
  • All Apps page - You can bulk edit apps to add tags.
  • Add a New App page - You can optionally add tags.

App tagging from the Manage App drawer

The Tags field uses type-ahead and will try to match the text entered with existing tags. If no existing tag is found, you can create one on the fly and add the new tag by clicking Create tag name. Click Save to update the app with the selected tag or tags.
