Creating and managing tags

Acquia Journey uses tags to make it easier to locate the graphs, nodes, or adaptors that you want to open.

Whenever you create a new graph, node, or adaptor, Acquia Journey associates one or more default tags with the item, with the tag being related to the object’s type. You can also, however, create your own custom tags if required, and then add them to your objects.

Searching for items with tags

To search for a specific tag to find associated graphs, nodes, or adaptors, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Acquia Journey.
  2. On the Projects page, click the title of the project you want to customize. Acquia Journey will display the Overview tab for your project.
  3. Click the Graphs tab.
  4. In the filter field, enter the name of a tag. As you type, the list of available graphs, nodes, and adaptors will update to display only items matching your search query.
  5. Click the name of the item that you want to open.
  6. At the bottom of the page, click Open.

Working with custom tags

Although Acquia Journey will assign default tags to your objects, this may not provide you the level of detail you need to effectively manage your objects, especially if you create a lot of projects with many graphs, nodes, and adaptors.

You can supplement the default tags assigned by Acquia Journey with custom tags, based on your specific needs.

Creating a custom tag

To create a new tag, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Acquia Journey.
  2. On the Projects page, click the title of the project you want to customize. Acquia Journey will display the Overview tab for your project.
  3. Under Project Admin, click Environments.
  4. Click Create Tag.
  5. In the Environments tab, click Create Tag.
  6. In the Create Tag dialog box, enter a tag name and optionally select a color.
  7. Click Create Tag.

Your new tag will appear in the Project Tags list.

Managing custom tags

Using Acquia Journey, you can edit or delete tags that have been previously created. Depending on your needs, complete the following steps:

Important

Deleting a tag immediately removes it from every associated node — Acquia Journey does not provide you with a deletion confirmation.

  1. Sign in to Acquia Journey.
  2. On the Projects page, click the title of the project you want to customize. Acquia Journey will display the Overview tab for your project.
  3. Under Project Admin, click Environments.
  4. In the Project Tags section, find the tag that you want to manage, and then click the icon that corresponds with your desired action:
    • Edit - Click the pencil icon.
    • Delete - Click the trashcan icon.
  5. If you are editing a tag, in the Edit Tag dialog, make any necessary changes, and then click Save Edits.

Adding or removing tags

Depending on your needs, use the following procedure to add or remove tags to (or from) graphs, nodes, or adaptors:

  1. Sign in to Acquia Journey.
  2. On the Projects page, click the title of the project you want to customize. Acquia Journey will display the Overview tab for your project.
  3. Click the Graphs tab.
  4. Search for the graph, node, or adaptor that you want to associate with a tag.
  5. Click the title of the graph, node, or adaptor you want to tag to open it in the Project Editor.
  6. In the Edit pane, click Update Item Tags. Acquia Journey will display the Associate Tags dialog box.
  7. In the list of tags, click the icon that corresponds to the action you want to complete:
    • Add - Under Project Tags, click the plus icon to the left of the tag name.
    • Remove - Under Item Tags, click the trashcan icon to the left of the tag name.
