I have a category
one and a category two (ok, in real life I have more but I do not think that that makes a difference).
one, exactly one tag from taggroup A is required and tags from other taggroups X, Y and Z are optional.
two, exactly one tag from taggroup B is required and and tags from taggroups A, X, Y and Z are optional.
I can create a topic in category
one with one required and two optional tags as expected. Next I move this topic from category one to category two. Expected behaviour is that it will throw an error if the user does not specify the required tag from taggroup B. It however does not do that and the topic in category two ends up with a missing required tag

Yeah, I’m seeing this too with moderators moving topics.

We will get this sorted some time in the next 4 weeks. I added an internal tag to prioritize.
I’m a new user here so please forgive me if I ask impertinent questions. Does this apply to just this bug or to all (or at least most) bugs that have been reported related to tagging? E.g. I’ve reported 4 bugs related to tags in the last 10 days
Limiting tags to categories not working as expected
Editing topics with tag groups from parents allows incorrect tagging
Tags from multiple tag groups required only suggest "select at least one tag" This topic
Please note that I’m not trying to push issues that I raise to the top; there might be far more important issues that need attention. I’m just curious.if, while the team is at it, they will try to iron out all / most of them?

hopefully we can get to all of them, we will let you know.

This issue and the other ones should be fixed in

# FIX: Displaying the wrong number of minimum tags in the composer
When the m
… inimum number of tags set for the category is larger than the minimum number of tags set in the category tag-groups, the composer was displaying the wrong value.
This commit fixes the value displayed in the composer to show the max value between the required for the category and the tag-groups set for the category.
This bug was reported on Meta in https://meta.discourse.org/t/tags-from-multiple-tag-groups-required-only-suggest-select-at-least-one-tag/263817
# FIX: Limiting tags to categories not working as expected
When a category was restricted to a tag group A, which was set to only allow
one tag from the group per topic, selecting a tag belonging only to A returned
other tags from A that also belonged to other group/s (if any).
Tag group A: alpha, beta, gamma, epsilon, delta
Tag group B: alpha, beta, gamma
Both tag groups set to only allow one tag from the group per topic.
If Category 1 was set to only allow tags from the tag group A, and the first tag
selected was epsilon, then, because they also belonged to tag group B, the tags
alpha, beta, and gamma were still returned as valid options when they should not be.
This commit ensures that once a tag from a tag group that restricts its tags to
one per topic is selected, no other tag from this group is returned.
This bug was reported on Meta in https://meta.discourse.org/t/limiting-tags-to-categories-not-working-as-expected/263143.
# FIX: Moving topics does not prompt to add required tag for new category
When a topic was moved from a category to another, the tag requirements
of the new category were not being checked.
This allowed a topic to be created and moved to a category:
- that limited the tags to a tag group, with the topic containing tags
- that required n tags from a tag group, with the topic not containing
the required tags.
This bug was reported on Meta in https://meta.discourse.org/t/moving-tagged-topics-does-not-prompt-to-add-required-tag-for-new-category/264138.
# FIX: Editing topics with tag groups from parents allows incorrect tagging
When there was a combination between parent tags defined in a tag group
set to allow only one tag from the group per topic, and other tag groups
relying on this restriction to combine the children tag types with the
parent tag, editing a topic could allow the user to insert an invalid
combination of these tags.
Automakers tag group: landhover, toyota
- group set to limit one tag from the group per topic
Toyota models group: land-cruiser, hilux, corolla
Landhover models group: evoque, defender, discovery
If a topic was initially setup with the tags toyota, land-cruiser it was
possible to edit it removing the tag toyota and adding the tag landhover
and other landhover model tag like evoque for example.
In this case the topic would end up with the tags toyota, land-cruiser,
landhover, evoque because Discourse will automatically insert the
missing parent tag toyota when it detects the tag land-cruiser.
This combination of tags would violate the restriction specified in
the Automakers tag group resulting in an invalid combination of tags.
This commit enforces that the "one tag from the group per topic"
restriction is verified before updating the topic tags and also
make sure the verification check the compatibility of parent tags that
would be automatically inserted.
After the changes the user will receive an error similar to:
The tags land-cruiser, landhover cannot be used simultaneously.
Please include only one of them.

This issue is solved
Move; do not change tags
Clicking the tag dropdown
I’ll just need to inform moderators of the additional step to check the tags; they will not be amused
