Use tags to search and categorize

Answers uses tags to help categorize content for easier searching. For example, an Answer about setting up SSL forwarding with self-signed certificates might be tagged with the words ssl, forwarding, and security.

A list of the more popular tags currently in use is shown on the right side of the Answers landing page. Click on any tag to instantly search for all Answers tagged with that tag.

For a complete list of all tags currently defined in Splunkbase, click the Tags tab in Splunk Answers. You can then sort alphabetically by name or by popularity.

Email notification

You can tell Answers to send you an email if someone posts an Answer tagged with a tag you specify. For example, you might be interested in knowing when someone posts a question or answer about a particular technology you work with.

To set up email notifications:

  1. Log into your splunk.com user account.
  2. Navigate to the Answers landing page.
  3. Click on the Tags tab, and search for the tag you want to follow.
  4. Select your desired tag from the results, and click +Follow on that tag's page.

To stop receiving notifications for a tag, navigate to that tag's page and click Unfollow.
