Add or Remove Tags to Servers within a Deployment


To add/remove tags (bulk tagging) to multiple Servers in a Deployment.

The ability to tag multiple servers (bulk tagging) at the same time is a useful feature, especially if you use tags to perform operations on Servers across your Deployment(s) using the RightScale API.  Bulk tagging is only supported at the Deployment level.


Add Tags

Go to Manage > Deployment > YourDeployment.  Under the Servers tab, select which Servers you want to add the same tag to, select Add Tag(s) from the dropdown menu and click the Apply to selected button.


Next, enter the tag that you want to add.  Add as many tags as you want.  Be sure to specify if you only want the tag to apply to the "current" server or apply to all future ("next") servers.   This preference will apply to all tags that you add during this action.  If you want to use separate preferences for a tag, you will need to repeat the process and add it as a separate action.

When you're finished, click the Apply button.


Remove Tags

Unlike adding tags, you can only remove one tag at a time.  To remove a tag, simply select which servers you want to remove the tag from, select the Remove Tag option, and click the Apply to selected button.

You will need to manually enter the tag you wish to remove and click the Apply button.
