What is tagging?
Tagging is a feature allowing you to apply custom labels to a single device or multiple devices. Device tagging is purely for filtering purposes at this time.
How do I make use of the tagging feature?
Tagging is available through our API. An example of what this may look like:
"tags": ["database", "primary"],
The above payload would create a device in
EWR1 with CentOS as the specific OS and tag it with
database, primary in addition it is set to lock the device to avoid it being deleted.
Can I edit tags?
You can, it will take the following
PATCH payload to accomplish that:
"description": "Server description",
"tags": ["new_tag", "server"],
The above would add the tag
server in addition to that you also notice
newhostname.server.comyou can use the paylod to also change your hostname (the change will only be reflected via API calls and the portal). To change your hostname within the device it's self.
