Tagging Connectors to Configure Access

You can control access for connectors with the usage of tags. The tags help you to organize your connectors and to manage user access to them. 

All the CloudView groups that were assigned to CloudView connectors have been migrated to Qualys tags. The sub-users, with connector group assigned, are now assigned the equivalent tags. 


You can apply tags to connectors and group or segregate connectors using a specific tags for a connector as well. Use tags to provide access or restrict access to connectors you create.

Note: Managing access of connectors using tags will take at least 30 mins to reflect on CloudView for the user.

Assign Tags to Connector

You can only assign tags from the CloudView application if the connector hasn't been merged with the Connector application. 

Note: For the connectors that are merged with the connector application, you can assign tags in the connector application. For more information on assigning tags to merged connectors, refer to the Connector online help.

To assign tags to a connector that is not merged, follow the steps below.

1) Select the connector and choose the 'Assign Tag' option from the quick action menu. Show me.Show me.

2) Select an existing tag and click on Add Tag. Show me.Show me.

Alternatively, you can create a new tag. For detailed steps on how to create a new tag, refer to Configure Tags.

The selected tags are assigned to the connector.

Restrict User Access to all Connectors

By default, if no tags are assigned to a user, the user can access all connectors. To restrict access to all connectors, you need to create a tag and not assign it to any connector but only to the user.
