Can taglist component be used inside search result rendering variant?

I tried to use it with in search result rendering and it is just keep spinning and not showing any results. In the console, I am seeing "Value cannot be null. parameter name: database". I am using sitecore 9.1.1 with Sitecore SXA 1.8.1.

Thanks for in advance for any help.

Please take the bellow approach as this is working quite fine for me (I've just checked it). I have a couple of pages which I've tagged with three tags:

Modify your Search Results rendering variant and add Variant Reference item and use SxaTags field to pass through:

Under Variant Reference drop a variant field which will display Title of a tag item:

Here are the results:

  • Thank you so much @Dawid. I am aware of this approach, but I am looking to make the tag behave like taglist. If tag is clicked, I want to display results in assigned search result page. Thanks again :)

  • That is easy to achieve! Just add Filter Checliks rendering to those I've on a page you will be able to filter results. Just remember to create a facet and point it to sxatags field. Commented May 9, 2019 at 18:38
