Tagging elements

A tag is a key-value pair assigned to a single element. Tags can be used to group elements and as search filters in Inventory Explorer, Event Explorer, Report Explorer, and Policy Editor. You can tag elements via the Inventory Explorer.

Tip   For AWS elements, Netuitive allows you to use the existing tags in your AWS CloudWatch account. For more information about tagging your elements in AWS, see the AWS tagging user guide.
