Managing labels

Use labels in Reporting to organize reports and dashboards for quicker access.

Before you begin

  • Managing labels requires the Reporting Category write permission.
  • Viewing labels requires the Reporting Category read permission.
  • You can manage and assign labels from both the Dashboards page and the Reports page.
  • Reports and dashboards share the same set of labels.
  • You can also assign labels to reports and dashboards when you create or edit the reports and dashboards.
  • You can assign multiple labels to the same report or dashboard.
  • Tanium-managed reports and dashboards contain labels assigned by Tanium. You can also assign additional labels to Tanium-managed reports and dashboards. If you remove a Tanium-provided label from a Tanium-managed report or dashboard, Reporting might add the label back after an upgrade or re-import.
