Remove a Tag

You may want to edit or remove tags that were created to a monitor a license server.

Note: Any name change will only change the name going forward; it will not change any historical data. So, if the tag changed was cad_WAN_SC and is changed to cad_WAN_AUS on Jan 1, 2017, you need to use the old name to pull reports prior to that date.

To remove a tag, perform the following steps:

  1. Go to the Admin page, and select the Monitors tab.

  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and find the tag that needs to be removed, and click Delete.
    A new window appears.
  3. Go to the Admin tab, and select Tags > Server.
    Note: Ensure that the top left of the page says, "Tag Administration (server)" and NOT "Tag Administration (database)​" or it will delete the tag from the database.
