If you specify an alternate download location, specify the username and password for the location.

Restrict Label Usage To

(Optional) The categories of items to which the label or label group can be applied. If you do not restrict label usage, the label or label group can be applied to any item. However, if you restrict the label or label group to categories such as Applications and Patches, that label or label group can be applied only to Applications and Patches; it cannot be applied to other items, such as Devices.

Meter Software Usage

Enable metering on devices that have the label assigned. This enables metering on the devices only. To meter software, you need to also enable metering for individual applications.

Allow Application Control

Label Group

(Optional) The label group to which the label is assigned. To assign the label to a label group, click Edit next to the Label Group field, then select a label group. This is useful if you have a large number of labels and you want to organize them into sub-labels. For example, you could include the labels of your licensed applications in a group label named Licenses. In addition, labels inherit any restrictions of the groups to which they belong.

Scoped to User Role

The user role associated with this label. When a label is associated with a user role, the user actions are limited to only those devices, scripts, and schedules that are associated with that label. For more information about user roles, see Add or edit User Roles.
