As a user I can manage and organize resources with tags

Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Groups helps organizing the resources but it is not enough. People need another way to classify their data.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Everybody, especially people with a lot of passwords.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
This will improve ease of use and increase adoption.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
See the options proposed: https://medium.com/passbolt/tags-functionality-b7f70786a0c4
Original request: ref. https://github.com/passbolt/passbolt_api/issues/30

  • Option 1. My tags are only set and seen by me
    Pro: Snarky tagging systems
    Con: Zero collaborative benefit
  • Option 2. Tags are set by the password owner (or people who can edit)
    Pro: Consistency with tags for certain people
    Con: Inconsistencies with understandings of tags
  • Option 3. The taxonomy is defined by the admin and tags are set by the owner (or people who can edit)
    Pro: Consistency with tags for everyone and hilariously long taxonomy development times
    Con: Disagreement amongst colleagues as to the usefulness of the taxonomy
  • Option 4. A combination of some of these options, e.g both personal and shared tags.
    Pro: Flexibility, which means it will be more useful
    Con: More complex, which means it will take us longer to build
  • Option 5. I can’t believe you did not think of this
    If you have an idea of how to integrate a tagging system into passbolt that you feel was not covered by the above 4 options, please choose this and then reply to the thread with your ideas!
