This guide provides instructions on how to manage known labels and known keys using F5® Distributed Cloud Services. Known label is a key-value pair that can be attached to objects for referencing the objects using the label. To know conceptual information on known labels and keys, see Known Labels and Known Keys.
Using the instructions provided in this guide, you can create known key-value pairs, apply them to different objects, and delete the known labels.

Create Known Label
Creating a known label involves creating a known key and defining a value for the key, thereby creating a key-value pair. You can define multiple values for a key to create more known labels (key-value pairs).
Perform the following in F5® Distributed Cloud Console to create known key-value pair:
Features can be viewed, and managed in multiple services.
