Use the Tag Browser

  • Policies > Rulebase (Security, NAT, QoS...)
The tag browser presents a summary of all the tags used within a rulebase (policy set). It allows you to see a list of all the tags and the order in which they are listed in the rulebase.
You can sort, browse, search, and filter for a specific tag, or view only the first tag applied to each rule in the rulebase.
The following table describes the options in the tag browser:

Description
Tag (#)
Displays the label and the rule number or range of numbers in which the tag is used contiguously.
Hover over the label to see the location where the rule was defined. The location can be inherited from the
Shared
location, a device group, or a virtual system.
Rule
Lists the rule number or range of numbers associated with the tags.
Filter by first tag in rule
Displays only the first tag applied to each rule in the rulebase, when selected.
This view is particularly useful if you want to narrow the list and view related rules that might be spread around the rulebase. For example, if the first tag in each rule denotes its function—administration, web-access, datacenter access, proxy—you can narrow the result and scan the rules based on function.
Rule Order
Sorts the tags in the order of appearance within the selected rulebase. When displayed in order of appearance, tags used in contiguous rules are grouped together. The rule number with which the tag is associated is displayed along with the tag name.
Alphabetical
Sorts the tags in alphabetical order within the selected rulebase. The display lists the tag name, color (if a color is assigned), and the number of times it is used within the rulebase.
The label
None
represents rules without any tags; it does not display rule numbers for untagged rules. When you select
None
, the right pane is filtered to display rules that have no tags assigned to them.
Clear
Clears the filter on the currently selected tags in the search bar.
Search bar
Allows you to search for a tag, enter the term and click the green arrow to apply the filter.
It also displays the total number of tags in the rulebase and the number of selected tags.
