      Does anyone have any documentation on creating custom tags? I'm looking to create a tag that will automatically apply to servers that are not compliant, say due to old dat, etc. I'm assuming it's going done by creating custom criteria. But I just don't know what sort of variable to use.

          Also, in task builder I do not have an option to run a query for "VSE: percent of non-compliant DAT adoption." is there some sort of update missing to allow me to run a query for that?

            I am also interested in finding out more about this - it appears there are four custom tag fields available ("Custom 1", "Custom 2", etc). Could be very useful.

            A search of the ePO docs and McAfee KB yields nothing useful...

              I talked with McAfee and it seems as though these custom entries are all dealing with SQL queries.

                Can you elaborate on what "are all dealing with SQL queries" means??

                  To be honest, I haven't figured it all out yet. I was in a hurry when i talked to him so when i find more out, i'll post it here.

                      I have found fields (ComputerPoperties) in the database that identify "Custom 1" and so on.. its called "UserProperty1" and so on - it`s actually possible to put data into those fields. My problem is that I want to know how or where the agent is actually picking this info up? - Is it the registry?

                        and why you can't use existing queries on ePO reporting part?
                        you can easily identify non-compliant system by run relevant report, and if you want create automatic task (that I do NOT advise if you deal with servers) you can go to Automation tab and create new task based on query criteria.

                          short question.
                          With custom tags, do you mean this tags where u can create under systems->Tag Catalog?
