Use cases

Tags are mainly used for categorization purposes, opposed to Collections which are like folders. Many customers use custom tags to differentiate between types of data. Some common examples:
  • "Production" vs. "Test"
  • Business-Related
    • "SOPs" - Standard operating procedures
    • "Critical Data" - Business critical data elements
    • "Key Account" - High-priority important accounts
  • Certificates (to be more specific with the Verified Identifier tag)
    • "Verified" - The resource and its metadata is accepted and approved by the business and ready to be used
    • "In review" - The owner or stakeholders are reviewing the resource
    • "Draft" - Resource is pending, work in progress, may have some issues
    • "Deprecated" - Should not be used, is outdated or stale
  • Security classifications (to be more specific with the PII Identifier tag)
    • Confidential
    • Restricted
    • Public
