A tag is an arbitrary key or a key-value pair that you can create and assign to your Oracle Application Container Cloud Service applications. You can use tags to organize and categorize your applications, and to search for them.
Create, Assign, and Unassign Tags
To assign tags to an application or to unassign tags:
- Navigate to the Overview page for the application for which you want to assign or unassign tags.
- If at least one tag is assigned to the application, the Overview page shows the first tag assigned to the application. If there aren’t any tags assigned to the application you see the Click to Assign label.
Hover over the tag or the Click to Assign label, until a More link is displayed.
Click the More link.
- In the Manage Tags dialog box, assign or unassign tags, as required:
- In the Assign section, from the Tags field, select the tags that you want to assign to the instance.
- If the tags that you want to assign don't exist, select Create and Assign in the Tags field, and then enter the required tags in the Enter New Tags field.
- To unassign a tag, in the Unassign section, look for the tag that you want to unassign, and click the X button next to the tag.
- To exit without changing any tag assignments for the instance, click Cancel.
- After assigning and unassigning tags, click OK for the tag assignments to take effect.
Find Tags and Applications Using Search Expressions
A tag is an arbitrary key or a key-value pair that you can create and assign to your Oracle Application Container Cloud Service applications. You can use tags to organize and categorize your applications, and to search for them. Over time, you might create dozens of tags, and you might assign one or more tags to several of your applications. To search for specific tags and to find instances that are assigned specific tags, you can use filtering expressions.
For example, on the Application page of the web console, you can search for the applications that are assigned a tag with the key
env and any value starting with
env:dev1, env:dev2), by entering the search expression
'env':'dev%' in the Search field.
