I’m playing around with the Greenbone Security stack and I was wondering if it’s possible to automatically assign tags to hosts, reports produced by tasks etc.

We have a couple of subnets/IP’s that belong to a certain business unit. For this business unit I would like the scans that are ran, hosts and reports that come from those scans to automatically be tagged so we can easily filter for these results within GSA. I would also use these filters to generate alerts for hosts with certain tags so the correct people can be informed.

Does the Greenbone Security stack have such functionality built-in or would I have to reside to writing my own scripts to assign these tags each night (using the Python library for example)?

I have looked around a bit and wasn’t able to find an answer thusfar.

Thanks in advance!
