Managing Tags

Tags are the Hub's way to highlighting and attaching key words to various content on the Hub. Based off of hashtags, Tags allow users to connect various projects, groups, publications, together by attaching the same tag to each piece of content. When creating or editing an area on the Hub, you will be presented with a field to submit a tag.

You can simply add a tag by typing in the field a word and then click Enter. If you wish to remove the tag, hover over the tag and an X will appear to the right of the word. Select the X and the tag will be removed.

How to Tag Tickets

Tags are essential in tracking tickets in the Support section of the Hub. Track various component requests, broken sections and questions all by adding Tags to a ticket. For example, when testing out a newly added feature or development item, you can tag your support tickets with three tags conveying the information of where, what, and why. The following points define each tag and have a list of examples under each point:


  • Where: The first tag should convey where the ticket is coming from.
    • Hub: Hub name
    • Development Environments: QA, dev, production
  • What: The second tag should convey what release the ticket involves.
    • Releases: The release number
  • Why: The third tag should convey why the ticket is being submitted.
    • Components: projects, collections, groups, super groups
    • Areas: backend, frontend, plugins, menus
    • Reasons: security, scripts,  hubupdate
