    After you add tags to a channel, you can filter by those tags on the Dashboard and Channels views.

    Always include what Mirth Connect version you're working with. Also include (if applicable) the code you're using and full stacktraces for errors (use CODE tags). Posting your entire channel is helpful as well; make sure to scrub any PHI/passwords first.

    - You just bar.

      They can be quite handy if you put a little thought into them. I've tagged all our channels that service Acute Care hospitals with Acute. I've also tagged some with US State names or company regional names. Pretty useful when you want to cut out all the clutter and just see channels for, say, all the acute-care hospitals in Florida.

        Can these channel tags be used from javascript, say from the preprocessor and postprocessor?

          Hi Jon - could you please tell me how to actually do this filter? I see where to put the tags but don't see where to set the filters.

            On either the Dashboard or Channels view, click on the wrench icon at the bottom-left.

                  I am pretty sure the answer is No, but let Nick speak for that.

                  A very good use case for channel tags is, that if have 100 channels and want to see only a fraction of channels, channels on which you are performing active development and other channels that are just there because you cannot decide whether to keep it or discard it, you can filter them like with a 'grounded' tag and otherwise. That way you only get to see what's in the active development queue. Its a good mirth practice.

                    I'm interested as well if there is a way to access those tags through code.

                    I don't see a way to list channels that do not have a certain tag. In my case, we are upgrading code on each channel, and having a list of those not touched yet would be great. Doubt it will happen, but a 'nice to have'.

                      Is there a limit on the number of tags a channel can have? We have some channels that could fall into several categories.

                        Technically no, but in 3.5 we've limited the number of tags that can be added to a single channel to 10.

                          What are the chances of increasing the limit beyond 10? I'd like to have all of my destinations tagged but the ADT and lab results have well over 10 destinations.
