Is it possible for me to do a discovery in vmware based out of TAGs? we have over 4000 VMs and I cannot scan or discover based on VMware TAGS today.
Not only would it be nice to be able to import these tags from VMWare, but it would also be nice to be able to control the VMWare tags from within Solarwinds. The ability to add,remove, and modify the tag values would be immensely helpful. In our case, I think that it would also be great to have a compliance template for the requires tags on a VM that can be used to alert on a VM when information is missing.
VMWare tags have been a round for a long time and I can find a number of forum posts asking about VMWare tags back 4-5 years. Please bring this functionality to Solarwinds.
Any update on this? Is this on the Roadmap?

If you have any use cases that are pertaining to this I'd love to hear more from you. In the meantime, in VMAN 8.3 we added support for Orion custom properties, which is where tag values can be stored and used to filter.
