Project Tags: Overview

High-level overview of project tags in RiskSense.

Project tags are a special type of tag. Use project tags to create a framework and timeline around remediation and users assigned to the findings. When creating tags, project tags require more information than the other types of tags.

Additional information about project tag fields are provided below.

  • Tag Type: Selecting the Project tag type adds additional fields to complete.
  • Name: Tag name or project name.
  • Description: Optional tag/project description.
  • Owner: Generally, the user that created the tag, but others can be added or removed. Type in a user name, and when you see the user to add in the drop-down list, click their name. To remove a user, click the X next to their name.
  • Priority: Project priority. Can be a value from one to five, with one being low priority and five being high priority.
  • Start Date: Project start date.
  • End Date: Project end date.
  • Color: Assign a color to the tag for easy identification.
  • Locked: Tags can be locked so that no one else can edit its 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.
  • PCI: Once a project tag is set and saved as PCI, the date and its status as PCI cannot be changed. The PCI tag will then look at hosts and the corresponding scans for those assets. The FIRST scans will be reviewed by the tag and each asset’s findings will be tagged if they fall within the range set for the Project/PCI tag. After the date on the project passes, the tag will lock.
