AEM Tags : Edit tag behavior

Avatar

Level 2

Does anyone know what is the expected behavior for an edited tag that is not moved or merged? Is there a record of what the tag was previously? 

 

Let's say I edit this tag: /content/cq:tags/product-taxonomy/clothes/shoes/sandals-mules/thongs to content/cq:tags/product-taxonomy/clothes/shoes/sandals-mules/flip-flops, should I see anything in CRXDE in the backlinks field?

 

I know what happens with moved and merged tags in AEM, but what about edits, should I be able to see a history of the former tag string in backlinks? If not, where?

When you edit any tag then its only to change the title and description of the tag. in your above example is a case of move operation and not edit as you are changing the node name.

Well I'd be updating the Title and the string too, is that not an edit?

if you are using AEM UI, you can edit only title, description and Language.

I am not sure how you are editing the tag.

Prior to using our PoolParty integration with the Semantic Web Booster, I used the classic UI to edit the string. I've found that I lost so much of the functionality within the Touch UI for Tags that I revert back to classic. It is impossible to quickly do a scan of active tags or see a list of tags "counts" i.e. references. I've submitted ideas but I have yet to see any of those improvements.

I edit the tag in PoolParty taxonomy manager and ontology engine, sync with the Semantic Web Booster to AEM (created by another 3rd party) and if there are minor changes like the removal of "s" (edits the name (string) and the title or the addition of "-" in the title, AEM isn't recognizing these changes in CRXDE, but does in the Touch UI.
