Apply a Label


Apply a Label

Labels are created using a key value pair. For example, department:devops or priority:critical.

An object can only have one label using each key applied to it. A project could be labeled as department:engineering and environment:staging, but not department:engineering and department:marketing.

If you apply a label to an object that already has a label with the same key, Kion will alert you that the previously applied label will be removed.

Labels are not inherited.

To apply a label from the settings menu:

  1. In the left navigation menu, click Settings > Labels.
  2. Click the ellipsis menu next to the label you want to apply and select View.
  3. Click the tab for the type of object you want to apply the label to.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Select the objects you want to add the label to from the dropdown menu.
  6. Click Add.

To apply a label from the resource's details page:

  2. Click the ellipsis menu and select View.
  3. On the Overview tab, click the Manage link next to Labels.
  4. Find the label you want to apply and click Add.
