Details

Content Services supports tagging of file and folder nodes to assist with searches. A tag is a short text string added to an item, rather like a hashtag in social media.

Usually, it is wise to let the user see a list of existing tags and let them choose one by clicking. If they type a tag name with incorrect spelling then it will be treated as a new tag, even though that was not intended. Use getAllTheTags to find all tags in the repository when you need to construct a list like this.

See the Tags API in the Alfresco JS API for more information about the types returned by Tag service methods and for the implementation of the REST API the service is based on.
