Organizing many applications with bulk tagging

Cloud Platform allows users with the Owner or Administrator roles in the Cloud Platform user interface to tag applications in bulk. Bulk application tagging enables you to manage many applications’ tags simultaneously with the Tag Manager.

Note

Users with the Administrator and Team Lead roles have permission to add and remove tags from individual applications in the Cloud Platform user interface.
