How to Use Tags to Organize Connected Appliances

  • Last updated on

Use tags to group different types of connected Barracuda appliances into logical groups. For example, if you want to group all of the Barracuda Web Security Gateways in your Paris office by location, you might call your group ParisWSG. If you want to group multiple types of Barracuda Networks products that serve the Marketing department, you could name the group MarketingVarious, indicating that there is more than one type of product in the group.

Note that some features must be configured on each individual device within a group. Examples include IP Address; Quarantine settings on the Barracuda Email Security Gateway; Services on the Barracuda Web Application Firewall; and Default Host Name on various product types. Note that some tabs or pages of the web interface for a product may be dimmed (unavailable) for this reason, or because the features on that tab or page are not supported for multiple products simultaneously.

Managing Tags

Click Manage Tags at the bottom of the Appliance Control Tree to open the Tag Management window.
