Tags are short keywords or keyword phrases associated with jobs. They help organize jobs in the Mitto UI.

Jobs can have zero, one, or multiple tags.

Why use Tags?

There are several benefits for tagging jobs in Mitto.

Organization with Tags

Clicking on a tag shows a page with all jobs with that tag.

For example, clicking on the tag jira navigates to a page ending in /#!/tag/jira:

This /#!/tag/{tag} page can be added a custom navigation item:

The Stage is a specific example of this tag and page interaction. Any jobs tagged with stage end up on the Mitto's Stage.

Searching for Tags

The job search input on multiple pages in the Mitto UI will find jobs by their tag (as well as other job meta data).

For example, searching for jira finds 22 jobs in Mitto with jira in the job metadata or as a tag.

How to Add a Tag to a Job?

Tags can be added to jobs in a number of ways:

  • On an individual job's page
  • On certain pages where there is a list of jobs (e.g. jobs, stage, any "tags" page)

Tagging on an Individual Job's Page

The top section of any individual job's page has a section for tags:

Hover over the blank space below TAGS and click the dropdown arrow.

Select an existing tag or type in a new one and click the orange + button.

Tagging Single or Multiple Jobs on "Jobs" Pages

On certain pages (e.g. jobs, stage, any "tags" page), you can select an individual job or multiple jobs and add tags.

Select one or more jobs and click the orange Actions button to perform an action on these jobs. Select Tag.

Select an existing tag or type in a new one and click the orange + button.
