Chapter 3. System tags and groups

The Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console enables administrators to filter systems in inventory and in individual services using group tags. Groups are identified by the method of system data ingestion to the console. The Hybrid Cloud Console enables filtering groups of systems by those running SAP workloads, by Satellite host group, and by custom tags that are defined by system administrators with root access to configure the Insights client on the system.

Use the global, Filter by status box to filter by SAP workloads, Satellite host groups, or custom tags added to the Insights client configuration file.

Prerequisites

The following prerequisites and conditions must be met to use the tagging features in Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console:

  • The Insights client is installed and registered on each system.
  • To create custom tags, root permissions, or their equivalent, are required to add to or change the /etc/insights-client/tags.yaml file.

3.1. Tag structure

Tags use a namespace/key=value paired structure.

  • Namespace. The namespace is the name of the ingestion point, insights-client, and cannot be changed. The tags.yaml file is abstracted from the namespace, which is injected by the client before upload.
  • Key. The key can be a user-chosen key or a predefined key from the system. You can use a mix of capitalization, letters, numbers, symbols and whitespace.
  • Value. Define your own descriptive string value. You can use a mix of capitalization, letters, numbers, symbols and whitespace.
