MetaAccess provides a mechanism for pre-tagging devices according to any arbitrary string.
1. Tag devices via enrollment process
For installed Windows and OSX version:
A tag name must be appended to the installer file name. For example if the managed device installer for Windows for an account is named OPSWAT_GEARS_Client_3445-d212055151e00f8b6ecd3dfb73032391-0.msi the installer would be renamed to OPSWAT_GEARS_Client_3445-d212055151e00f8b6ecd3dfb73032391-0-SanFranciscoOffice.msi to tag devices with the tag “SanFranciscoOffice”
For Android and iOS:
Enter a tag to GROUP IDENTITY in advanced mode when you enroll your device. If you enter a group id of a device group on your account, the device will be assigned to that group when it connects to the MetaAccess cloud.
Or add it to the deeplink: gears://regcode/4X7GZ7SN/SanFranciscoOffice
2. Manually edit the device’s nickname with a tag name
3. Where do I see a devices with a specific tag?
After enrolling a a device with a tag name, the nickname of the device will be constructed as 'hostname'+"-"+'tag name' automatically. This nickname field is searchable on the cloud console as well as API.
On the cloud console, go to Inventory > Devices and search with a tag name
Notes: Pre-tag feature is not applicable for dissolvable and Linux agents.
With API, calling GET https://gears.opswat.com/o/api/v3.1/devices with search parameter. The API would return devices which is tagged with the tag name.
