In 2022 we released the tags functionality in Orchestrator, Studio and Action Center. Now, we have come back with the Tags Management portal where tags can be added/edited/deleted. Along with this, we also added the advanced feature of setting up numeric, boolean or regex types for key value pairs.
I am looking for your feedback regarding tags, along these lines:
Do you use tags today? If yes, for what objects (assets, buckets, etc) and how do they help you? Do you use both labels and key value pairs or just one of them?
Are there any other UiPath products where you think using tags will help you?
Are there any use cases where you would like to use tags in the future?
Anything else you would like to share along this subject.
I’ll work with the AI Center team to see what they think.
Yep, you can search Processes tagged with a specific label/key value pair. From the search functionality in Orchestration, you can select the filter Type: Process and see all processes and their tags. More info in the docs link. Also, if you tag your package in Studio, the tags will be ported over to Orchestrator when the package is uploads/the process is created.
Thanks for your feedback.
Is there any relation between Labels and Properties.
If Not why we have Labels and Properties Separate - I Understand Label is storing a single value and Properties is a kind of Drop Down where we restrict to select from particular value. Can’t we have this both in a single place … Please Correct my understanding here . .
In my Orchestrator _ i created 2 Labels and 2 Properties as shown Below
It was a design decision based on how we store/can search data in the database.
3/4. You should see the labels in Orchestrator especially since you said you are an admin (therefore the Tags permission from Orchestrator should be set to ON for View/Create/Edit/Delete). Thanks for also checking that you are connected to the right tenant.
Can you please also try the following: from the Orchestrator interface, go to the Search function and try to find the tags in the filters at the top of the page, let me know if you see them. More details here. Also to further investigate, I could really use your tenant URL. I sent you a private message, can you please reply with the url?
Thanks for your questions and for testing the feature!
Say we tag every automation with business function such as IT, HR, Procurement, etc. I would like to be able to filter by business function in Insights. Or we tag automations as mission critical, critical, non-critical. Again, I would like to be able to list automations according to their criticality. All this information is stored in tags which are not visible in Insights.
