The Tag Picker widget lists all available object tags.

How the Tag Picker Widget and Configuration Options Work

With the Tag Picker widget you can check the list of the object tags. You can use the widget to filter the information that another widget shows. You can select one or more tags from the object tree and the destination widget displays information about the objects with this tag. For example, you can select Object Types > Virtual Machine on the Tag Picker widget to observe statistic information about the VMs on the Environment Status widget.

You edit a Tag Picker widget after you add it to a dashboard. To configure the widget, click the pencil in the upper-right of the widget window. You can configure the Tag Picker widget to send information to another widget on the same dashboard or on another dashboard. To set a receiver widget that is on the same dashboard, use the Widget Interactions menu when you edit a dashboard. To set a receiver widget that is on another dashboard, use the Dashboard Navigation menu when you edit a source dashboard. You can configure two Tag Picker widgets to interact when they are on different dashboards.

Where You Find the Tag Picker Widget and Configuration Options

The widget might be included on any of your custom dashboards. In the left pane, click Home to see your configured dashboards.

To customize the data that appears in the dashboard widget, click Content > Dashboards. On the Dashboards toolbar, click the Add icon to add a dashboard or the Edit icon to edit the selected dashboard. In the Dashboard workspace, on the left, click Widget List, and drag a widget to the right pane of the dashboard. On the title bar of the selected widget, click the Edit icon to access the configuration options.
