@jeremylanssiers , Can you please explain the use a little further?

Do you want to be able to select specific pages under a live copy and tag them ?

If the use case is just be able to group entire live copies, you can consider adding the cq:tag at the root content page of the live copy.

 

After that, when you need to check whether a given live copy page belongs to specific group or not, you can just check if the corresponding group tag is available at the root of the content tree.

This way, you just have to configure tagging only at root content pages.

 

Let me know if this helps.

Bulk tagging is not currently supported in general, regardless of live copy or regular page, short of using Bulk Editor which was in Classic UI and is deprecated. The request has been kept in the backlog and if anything changes in priority for bulk modifications in general. This would be worked upon.

@jeremylanssiers If you have ACS commons installed in your environment, I suggest you install/upgrade to version 6.1.0

We have added a bulk tagging feature for content pages in this milestone and that should solve your problem.

If your need is immediate, you can just head over to the ACS commons pull requests section and grab the MCP tool - bulk page tagger and customize it for your needs or you can create a new MCP based on your exact requirements.

@Harwinder-singh I installed 6.1.0 and I found the feature you mention inside the Manage Controlled Processes. Bulk adapting tags via MCP was one of our initial ideas, but we need it to be easily authorable with a GUI. So this is a nice addition, but we still need to build a GUI way to do this for Authors.
