  • Color: Assign a color to the tag for easy identification.
  • Locked: Tags can be locked so that no one else can edit their settings (checked) or unlocked (unchecked), allowing anyone to edit.
  • Propagate Asset Tag to All Findings: When applying tags to assets, checking this box ensures that all findings on that asset are also tagged. When applying tags to assets, unchecking this box propagate tags exclusively to assets.

Once completed, click Submit. The new tag is now available in the Tags drop-down menu and on the Tags page. You can now assign the tag to findings.
