A tag is a descriptive keyword or term assigned to Feed or a Datastream that helps it to be found, grouped, sorted and/or identified. There can be zero or more tags associated with any Feed or Datastream.

A tag can be a single word/term, for example “humidity”, or group of words/terms, for example “Control Unit type A7”. A comma ( , ) is used to separate tags.

The following characters will be stripped out of tag text:

  • apostrophe
  • double quote

Tags are read and written through the Feeds and Datastreams API resources.
