  4. In the Namespace field, select an existing namespace from the drop-down list or create a new one. To create a new one, simply type in the namespace name (up to a maximum of 255 characters) and select the Create option that appears below the namespace entry box. A namespace acts as a category for grouping similar tags. For example, tags associated with security might be grouped under a namespace called Security.

  5. After specifying the namespace name, enter the name of your new tag (up to a maximum of 255 characters) in the Tag field and select . The new tag appears in your list of existing tags under the selected namespace.

Using DDL

To create a new tag using the DDL, access the Workspace page and enter:

CREATE ATTRIBUTE [IF NOT EXISTS] <namespace.tag_name>;

Note: Tags are case-insensitive. This means that if you try to create a tag with capitalization, it will automatically be normalized and stored in lowercase. Case-sensitive tags are not currently supported.
