Mike Tutkowski created CLOUDSTACK-1459:
------------------------------------------

             Summary: Stop using comma-delimited lists for Tag fields
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-1459
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-1459
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: UI
    Affects Versions: 4.0.0, pre-4.0.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1.0, 4.2.0
         Environment: All supported environments for the GUI
            Reporter: Mike Tutkowski
             Fix For: Future


>From a usability standpoint, it is not desirable to have users enter in a comma-delimited
list of items.

* It can be difficult to remember the exact text you wish to enter (ex. was it PS_Gold or
Gold_PS?).

* It is easy to typo a list item (ex. you meant to type PS_Gold (to match an existing item),
but instead you typed P_Gold).

* It is not always clear if the text is case sensitive.

I recommend when creating and referencing tags that we use an Available, Selected, New approach.

For example, I could see a dialog that lists all Available tags.  You could create a new one,
which would be added to the Available list.  You could move one or more tags from the Available
list to the Selected list (and back again, if need be).
