This was from the beta discussion, just do not want it getting lost:

One enhancement that would be AWESOME is if when you select devices that you could pick NetXMS container names and then it would maintain that list of devices that this applies to based on that. Would just help to provide us with more reliable automation as the containers we use / import would insure that all devices are there and over time we do not miss any or leave ones that are not valid any longer.
We talked with the team today on how to best implement this.

(since this needs to work not just for NetXMS, but also for Zabbix, and other future importers we want to add)

We decided on this:
- Importer will be able to Tag devices (using already present Tag features) that they import
like with the NetXMS importer, it would tag devices per container they were imported from.
for Zabbix, it would tag from Device Groups in Zabbix, etc.

- you will be able to run a Mass Config Push on a Tag
so setting up a confg push preset to work on a Tag would push it to all devices in the tag

- since Tags will automatically be updated by importers, this should do what you outlined
