Add a Tagging Profile

You can use the Paragon Automation graphical user interface (GUI) to add static tagging and dynamic tagging profiles.

For more information on tagging, see Paragon Insights Tagging Overview.

Adding a Static Tagging Profile

To add a static tagging profile:

  1. Navigate to Configuration > Sensor > Settings.

    The Settings page is displayed.

  2. Click the Tagging Profile tab and then click (+) icon to add a tagging profile.

    The Add Tagging Profile page is displayed.

  3. Enter the following information in the Add Tagging Profile page:
    1. Enter a name for the tagging profile in the Name text box.

      The maximum length is 64 characters.

      Regex pattern: “[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_-]*

    2. Click Add Policy under Policies to define a policy for this tagging profile.

      You can define one or more policies.

      The New Policy section is displayed.

      1. Enter a name for the new policy in the Policy Name text box.

        The maximum length is 64 characters.

        Regex pattern: “[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_-]*

      2. Enter a rule that you want to apply to this tagging profile. The rule can contain an fnmatch expression.

        You can apply one or more than one rule to a profile. A rule is any defined Paragon Insights rule.

    3. Click Add Term under Terms to define a list of conditions.

      The Term: New Term drop-down list is added.

      Click the Term: New Term drop-down list to configure the following text boxes.

      1. Enter a name for the match condition in the Term Name text box.

      2. Configure When and Then statements.

        You can define tagging instructions in a Then statement. After the conditions that you set in a When statement are met, the Then statement is implemented. However, When statements are not mandatory in static tagging. A static tagging profile can be configured with just a Then statement.

        To configure a Then statement:

        1. Click Add Keys to add a key to the rules listed.

          The Name and Value text boxes are displayed.

          • Enter a name for the key in the Name text box.

            The maximum length is 64 characters.

            Regex pattern: “[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_-]*

            This name is added as the key field for all rules configured within the tagging profile rules section.

          • Enter a value that you want to associate to the key, in the Valuetext box.

        2. Click Add Field to add a field to the rules listed.

          The Name and Value text boxes, and the Type drop-down list are displayed.

          • Enter the name in the Name text box.

          • Enter a value in the Value text box.

          • Select the field type from the Type drop-down list.

            String type is selected by default.

        3. Set the Evaluate next term flag to True to evaluate conditions in the next term. Evaluate next term only if the first condition is satisfied.

          By default, the Evaluate next term flag is set to False.

  4. Click Save to only save the configuration.

    Click Save & Deploy to save and deploy the configuration immediately.

Adding a Dynamic Tagging Profile

To configure a dynamic tagging profile with Redis:

  1. Navigate to Configuration > Sensor > Settings.

    The Settings page is displayed.

  2. Click the Tagging Profile tab and then click (+) icon to add a tagging profile.

    The Add Tagging Profile page is displayed.

  3. Enter the following information in the Add Tagging Profile page.

    1. Enter a name for the tagging profile in the Name text box.

      The maximum length is 64 characters.

      Regex pattern: “[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_-]*

    2. Click Add Policy under Policies to define a policy for this tagging profile.

      You can define one or more policies.

      The New Policy section is displayed.

      1. Enter a name for the new policy in the Policy Name text box.

        The maximum length is 64 characters.

        Regex pattern: “[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_-]*

      2. Enter a rule that you want to apply to this tagging profile. The rule can contain an fnmatch expression.

        You can apply one or more rules to a profile. A rule is any defined Paragon Insights rule.

    3. Click Add Term under Terms to define a list of conditions.

      The Term: New Term drop-down is added.

      Click the Term: New Term drop-down list to configure the following fields:

      1. Enter a name for the match condition in the Term Name text box.

      2. Configure When and Then statements:

        You set conditions for a match in a when statement. To configure When statement,

        1. Click Add When.

          The New When Condition drop-down list is displayed.

        2. Click New When Condition to view the Operator drop-down list.

        3. Select a boolean operation that you want to apply to incoming data from the Operator drop-down list.

          The Left Operand and Right Operand text boxes are displayed.

          Note:

          The New When Condition drop-down list is automatically renamed to the operator condition that you selected.

          • Enter the value of the left operand of assignment that you selected, in the Left Operand text box.

            You can use $ as prefix to populate database values. For example, $memory. However, using $ as prefix is not mandatory.

          • Enter the value of the right operand of assignment that you selected, in the Right Operand text box.

            This value is populated from the Redis database.

          • Set the Evaluate in Memory flag to True to populate data from the Redis database.

            By default, the Evaluate in Memory flag is set to False. When the flag is set to false, data is populated from the TSDB.

          • Set the Evaluate next term flag to True to evaluate conditions in the next term. After the first condition is satisfied, the conditions in the next term are evaluated.

            By default, the Evaluate next term flag is set to False.

        You can define tagging instructions in a Then statement. After the conditions that you set in a When statement are met, the Then statement is implemented. However, When statements are not mandatory. A tagging profile can be configured with just a Then statement.

        To configure a Then statement:

        1. Click Add Keys to add a key to the rules listed.

          The Name and Value text boxes are displayed.

          • Enter a name for the key in the Name text box.

            The maximum length is 64 characters.

            Regex pattern: “[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_-]*

            This name will be added as key field for all rules configured within the tagging profile rules section.

          • Enter a value that you want to associate with the key, in the Value text box.

        2. Click Add Field to add a text box to the rules listed.

          The Name and Value text boxes, and the Type drop-down list are displayed.

          • Enter the name in the Name text box.

          • Enter a value in the Value text box.

          • Select the field type from the Type drop-down list.

            String type is selected by default.

        3. Set the Evaluate in Memory flag to True to populate data from the Redis database.

          By default, the Evaluate in Memory flag is set to False.

        4. Set the Evaluate next term flag to True to evaluate conditions in the next term. The next term is evaluated only if the first condition is satisfied.

          By default, the Evaluate next term flag is set to False.

  4. Click Save to only save the configuration.
