Rename a Tag in LicenseMonitor (Admin Only)

You may want to rename 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.

You need admin permissions to perform this task.

To rename a tag, perform the following steps:

  1. Go to the Admin tab, and select the Monitors option.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom, find the tag that needs to be removed, and select Edit.
  3. Change the name of the tag name and click the Update button at the bottom of screen.

    You need to delete the tag you just renamed in two additional places.
  4. Go to the Admin page, and select the Tags tab and then Server.
    Note: Ensure that the top left of the page says "Tag Administration (server)" and NOT "Tag Administration (database)" or it will delete the tag from the database.
