Sorry if this is the wrong place (It's either here or on the ArGIS Pro board).
Is there a reliable way to search by tag on ArcGIS for Desktop? I do not mean searching your AGOL or Enterprise portals, I mean searching data that you have on your local machine.
I have found multiple articles detailing how to search with tags, going back at least as far as ArcMap 9 at one point.
You are able to tag local shapefiles or feature classes in ArcCatalog and in the Catalog View, but I haven't been able to successfully search for the tags in either Catalog. Is there something I'm missing?
I've check my syntax, I've specified which path I want to search, and at this point I have run out of ideas for what could be the issue, if it is actually possible.
Here is the way to search a layer using tags in ArcGIS Pro desktop version.
Go to the ArcGIS Pro -> View -> Catalog View -> Search the GDB or Project which you wish to search the list of layers using tags and type tags:tagname (for example - tags:bmc) in search layer and hit enter.
Here is the output list from tags:bmc (total 4 layers selected)
Yes, this is exactly what is not working for me.
Searching for this specific file by tag:
I search, (and directly in its database, too) and nothing pops up.
I am using Pro 2.7, and I can't figure out why this won't work.
