Job Tags

A job tag identifies similar jobs or job templates. Use job tags to easily search and filter jobs and job templates when viewing them in the Jobs view. For example, you might want to group jobs by the origin system or by the test or production environment.

Job tags are similar to pipeline labels which you use to easily search and filter pipelines and fragments when viewing them in the pipeline repository.

You can use nested tags to create a hierarchy of job groupings. Enter nested tags using the following format:

<tag1>/<tag2>/<tag3>

For example, to group jobs in the test environment by the origin system, you might add the tags Test/ADLSGen2 and Test/Elasticsearch to the appropriate jobs.

Note: Job tags are different from the execution engine labels that you assign to jobs. Job tags are optional and are used simply to identify similar jobs. Execution engine labels are required. They determine which execution engine - Data Collector, Data Collector Edge, or Transformer - runs each job.

You add tags to jobs and job templates when you create or edit jobs and job templates.

To filter jobs and job templates by tags in the Jobs view, see Filtering Jobs and Job Templates.
