Need to be able to identify which targets belong to Staging or Production? Perhaps you only want to download target-specific reports? Either way, tagging couldn't be easier; in fact, in three simple steps it's all done!

Jump to the point of interest:

Manually assign tags

...when adding new targets

  1. Head to the targets page and select the target(s) you want to tag using the checkbox

  2. Hit 'Tag' at the top.

  3. Assign a tag

    1. To assign an existing tag, pick a tag from the dropdown and press enter

    2. To assign a new tag to your selected target(s), simply type a tag name and hit enter.

4. Finally, press 'Add Target', et voila! ✨

...to existing targets

From the Targets page:

  1. Head to your Targets page, select the targets and hit the Tag button

2. You can either add an existing tag, or create a new one. Once you've made your choice, just hit 'Save'.

From the target's detail page

  1. Click the Add tag button

2. As above, you can either add an existing tag, or create a new one. Once you've made your choice, just hit 'Save'.

Automatically import cloud tags

You also have the option to sync your cloud tags once the targets have been imported. To do this:

  1. Go to your Targets page > click the cloud account > Settings

  2. The Settings pane will appear on the right-hand side

  3. Toggle the 'Run scans against cloud tags' option on

These tags will then be shown against each of your Cloud targets as shown below:

These tags are read-only as they are pulled directly from the cloud provider and therefore you cannot modify or rename them from within the Intruder portal. If you make any changes to these tags on your cloud platform, these will be reflected on Intruder on the next CloudBot sync.

Using your tags

Just use the drop-down to select the tag(s) that you would like to see reflected on the dashboard:

Download target/tag-specific reports

On the Reports page you can filter by tag or target, and test time – downloading either a PDF or CSV report.

Managing tags

To manage tags, head to Targets > Manage tags

From here, you'll be able to:

Add new tag [1] Just as above.

Delete tag [2] All targets that have this tag assigned will lose it - it cannot be reversed.

Edit tag [3] You can edit the tag name, and/or the targets it's assigned to.


Can I export my targets and their tags?

It's not possible to download targets and their tags via the portal just yet, but you can do this via our API.

Can I bulk assign a tag?

Yes, absolutely. If it's an existing tag, just click 'Edit' and under Targets, start adding.

Can I bulk assign a tag to just my internal targets?

Definitely. Just head to your Targets page > filter by Internal > select all > hit the Tag button and assign the desired tag or create a new one:

Can I tag all targets in a specific cloud account?

Absolutely, just follow the steps above. Select the cloud account you're interested in > select all > hit the Tag button.

What happens if I delete tag used for a scheduled scan?

We'll let you know (and just to reiterate, deleting the tag will remove the scheduled scan).
