    Is there a way to add a USER tag via Trigger? It seems that any tag I attempt to add using a Trigger ends up on the ticket level.

    Hi pstrauss You can find a list of available Trigger conditions and actions here At this time you can't add a tag to a user from a trigger.

    That being said, you can create a custom user field and set that via trigger. That will then automatically add the tag at the user level.

    Hope that helps!

    Is there a way to search the tags under Admin>People>Tags? We have a good number of user tags on our account.

    Hello Tom,

    Natively there is no search feature that will let you page through tags as you described. I shared some documentation below that covers some best practices in managing ticket tags in your account. Also, if this is a feature you would like added, I would recommend posting in our Product Feedback forums so our developers can consider implementing this change in a future update.

    Our customers are split up into Support Tiers based on contract.  Initially when we setup Zendesk, we tagged these Organizations with the support tier - "enterprise" for example. 

    As we progressed the system, we now see a need to tie these tags to Jira for our Product Managers via the Jira application.  We are able to pass these tags if they are tagged with "jira_" for instance "jira_enterprise". 

    I'm wondering what the best way to replace the tag "enterprise" with "jira_enterprise" would be.  We have thousands of orgs to update (with 6 different support tiers), so manually isn't really a great option.  These orgs carry other tags as well, which I'm fairly confident a CSV import would remove.

    Hoping someone has a solution for this!

    Hi Michael,

    I would do an export of your Organizations with their current tags and do a search and replace and reupload.  You're right it will overwrite what's there, so make sure your upload keeps the other existing tags in place on that org!

    Definitely test this out with a small sample to tweak as needed.
