Is it possible to tag the versions of the items.

Example :

Version 1,2,3 will be tagged to Phase 1

Version 4,5,6 will be tagged to Phase 2

  • 3
    Can you add more information about what you're trying to achieve? Will the tagging be used to hold to publishing for example? Commented Oct 8, 2017 at 15:21

Yes you can

Tagging is a field that is stored as __Semantics and it is not shared between item versions. I ran a quick test.

Version 2, untagged.

Version 1, tagged

And searching for this tag

Returns only Version 1, as expected.

And final proof

I tagged both versions.

  • Thanks Mark. For some reason the search of the tag is showing only one version in the result set though i had tagged three versions.

  • Make sure your indexes are configured correctly, then rebuild the indexes.

  • Hello Mark,Rebuilt the index. Only the latest Version is fetched in the search result. Example: i had applied the test tag to version 3 and 4. The search result is populates only version 4
