The following are the spec and example files for tags.conf.
# Copyright (C) 2005-2011 Splunk Inc. All Rights Reserved. Version 4.3.1 # # This file contains possible attribute/value pairs for configuring tags. Set any number of tags # for indexed or extracted fields. # # There is no tags.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/. To set custom configurations, # place a tags.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. For help, see tags.conf.example. # You must restart Splunk to enable configurations. # # To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see the documentation # located at http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles [<fieldname>=<value>] * The field name and value to which the tags in the stanza apply ( eg host=localhost ). * A tags.conf file can contain multiple stanzas. It is recommended that the value be URL encoded to avoid * config file parsing errors especially if the field value contains the following characters: \n, =,  * Each stanza can refer to only one field=value <tag1> = <enabled|disabled> <tag2> = <enabled|disabled> <tag3> = <enabled|disabled> * Set whether each <tag> for this specific <fieldname><value> is enabled or disabled. * While you can have multiple tags in a stanza (meaning that multiple tags are assigned to the same field/value combination), only one tag is allowed per stanza line. In other words, you can't have a list of tags on one line of the stanza.
