You can view the VLAN objects assigned to a network on the IPAM tab or the DHCP tab. The Assigned VLAN ID and Assigned VLAN Name columns display the VLAN ID and name of the assigned object. If multiple VLANs are assigned to a network, Multiple is displayed in the Assigned VLAN ID and Assigned VLAN Name columns.
