Tags help you apply existing business practices and organizational structures to your network design. By tagging objects, you can identify and organize items within your network.

Address Manager tags are arranged in a hierarchical tree structure. Any number of elements are supported at each level of the hierarchy below a top-level or root tag known as a tag group. The system supports more than one hundred levels of tags, allowing you to design complex nested tag structures.

Tag structures are intended to represent the real world structure of the network, rather than the underlying IP structure. For example, top-level tag groups can represent business units, tags can represent divisions, and sub-tags can represent departments and other functional groups. For geographical regions and areas, you can use the Location feature introduced in Address Manager v8.3.1. For more information about the Location feature, refer to Location support.

Tag groups and tags become a model of your organization or process. By applying tags to objects within Address Manager, such as DNS zones and networks, you can effectively map your network resources to your organization. You can apply tags to almost all objects within Address Manager. Tag groups are used to organize tags and cannot be assigned to objects. You can view your tag groups with the Tag Groups widget on the My IPAM page.

For information about working with My IPAM tabs and widgets, refer to My IPAM overview.
