Remove a Tag in LicenseMonitor (Admin Only)

You may want to edit or remove tags that were created to a monitor a license server.

Note: Any name change will only change the name going forward; it will not change any historical data. So if the tag changed was cad_WAN_SC and is changed to cad_WAN_AUS on Jan 1, 2017, you need to use the old name to pull reports prior to that date. Or you can link the historical data from the old tag to the new one using the Command Line Interface. See instructions here.

You need admin permissions to perform this task.

To remove a tag, perform the following steps:

  1. Go to the Admin tab, and select the Monitors option.
