Search for objects with a specific tag

We can tag all objects but when we want to find all the objects with a specific tag that is not possible.

 

In the advanced search it should be possible to search for all objects. with a specific tag.

 

The tag should be a part to the search boost.

 

Example. I have 10 tables that I tag "Finance". When users search for finance the tables should appear even though finance is not a part of the table name, column names or description

Hi @kasd , 

 

it should already work in the advanced search. First pick "Tags" field and then select which Tag. If this doesn't work for you, then you should contact customer support.  

 

But I assume you mean mainly the LiveSearch on the top of the page?

In the Advanced search I was apparently doing it worng so I made it work now. But would still like it to work in the liveSearch/search boost

Hello @kasd ,

 

unfortunately we have found out that this change would require much bigger architectural change than we had expected. In order for livesearch to perform so fast it returns only records based on their name and alternative name, thus returning records based on a tag value is not feasible at this moment.
