Why do I want to tag my servers and probes?

Tagging is an important and simple way to do advanced functions in CopperEgg

 

To tag a server, simply click on the details button (bottom right) on any dashboard widget.  Then use the green + button to add a tag.  Keep it simple, things like prod, web, api, dev, db, app may do the job just fine.

Tags are used for:

 

1. Creating a correlated view of servers, probes and RUM web apps in the detail view when tagged the same, for example, web, prod, frontend, app, api, db, etc.
