The tags (not smart tags)in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) plays a significant role on categorizing or classifying the content including media content. AEM authors/business folks often times use the tags to tag the content relevant to each product/business unit.
The current problem within AEM is authors cannot get a consolidated report of content which is tagged with a specific tag. So, this solution generates a report of all (or selected tag) references along with some more additional data.
To avoid any additional load on publish servers, this functionality only runs on author servers and generates all the required information and upload them to DAM. This would help to avoid running this multiple times. If other authors want to access this then they can go to DAM and download the report.
AEM Version Support
This has been tested on AEM 6.2, AEM 6.3. However, I am planning to test this on AEM 6.4 and AEM 6.5 versions as well. Please check back here or in the comments section for an update.
