Tags are user-defined labels which can be applied to a variety of objects within NetBox. They can be used to establish dimensions of organization beyond the relationships built into NetBox. For example, you might create a tag to identify a particular ownership or condition across several types of objects.



A unique human-friendly label for the tag.


A unique URL-friendly identifier. (This value will be used for filtering.) This is automatically generated from the tag's name, but can be altered as needed.


The color to use when displaying the tag in the NetBox UI.

Object Types

The assignment of a tag may be limited to a prescribed set of objects. For example, it may be desirable to limit the application of a specific tag to only devices and virtual machines.

If no object types are specified, the tag will be assignable to any type of object.
