Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: Request for a separate column for each CQ tag group (Devices, Keywords, Symptoms, etc) when generating an Export Metadata report.
Use-case: 1. Select multiple assets in AEM Assets UI.
2. From the top menu, click 'Export Metadata'.
3. Enter the export details then click 'Export'.
4. When the report generation is completed, download the report (CSV Download).
Current/Experienced Behavior: All the cq tags are for an asset are listed in a single column (see attached screenshot).
Improved/Expected Behavior: Each cq tag group (Devices, Keywords, Symptoms, etc) is listed in a separate column.
Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable): AEM 6.5.12 ; AEM Guide 4.1
Customer-name/Organization name: Verizon
Screenshot (if applicable): Uploaded
Code package (if applicable):

You can get this by creating separate tag fields.  Instead of relying on cq:tags (which I've always found a weird decision in Adobe's out-of-the-box metadata schema), I think better user interface (and better data structure) is to have separate tag fields.  So you could have 1 for Devices that only exposes the Devices portion of the tags and stores in a Devices-specific metadata field.  Hope this helps.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion. The groups show up in separate columns in Assets UI (Device tags, Interopcode, Symptoms) but are listed as a single cq tag property in crxde.
