Tags are an organizational mechanism that can be used on any source or target container to identify special subset of the containers within a migration.
You might decide to use tags to…

  • Flag users under legal consideration
  • Group users into migration waves
  • Identify problematic containers
  • Identify VIPs that require special consideration
  • Identify containers that are out of scope

You can create, modify, and assign tags. Then, you can filter lists using those tags. You can create and apply tags on any of these pages:

  • User Information
  • Bulk Mapping
  • Existing Mapping
  • Stage 1
  • Stage 2

Note: Tags can be used with any type of container (including ownerless ones). Additionally, you can assign separate tags for a mapping’s source and target containers.
When you select objects and click the Tag Assignment button, you can create, remove, or assign tags using this window:

Tag Management page

The Configuration > Tag Management page shows a list of current tags and the number of containers assigned each tag. A tag can be expanded to review the containers that have the tag.
You can create, edit, or delete tags and tag assignments on this page.
An imported CSV file can be used to assign one or more tags to user group containers.
The supported fields for matching the containers are:

  • UserSid
  • SaMAccountName
  • Container Name

The format of the CSV file should be one of the following:

  • SID,tagname
  • samAccountName,tagname
  • ContainerName,tagname

Multiple tags can be assigned to a container, for example:

  • samAccountName,tag1,tag2,tag3

You can assign a tag to all members of a group using the Assign User Groups button. This allows you to select a group and assign a specific tag to all containers in that group. This can be useful when you’re transitioning from using groups, to using tags.
