Summary0021813: Modernize issue tagging user interface and experience
Description

We have two lines for adding tags to existing issue (see attached):
First line shows the current tag with separate delete button along each tag
Second line includes a form to add tags to the issue

The modern experience should reduce this into 1 line with multi selection search-dropdown menu (see second attached image)

@syncguru
I want to be sure you are aware that the current implementation allows to create a new tag and attach it in one step by entering free text.

Do you plan to implement it in the multi selection search-dropdown menu or do you go on using a text field?

@atrol - I was planning on using multi-selection dropdown. Not sure about creating a new tag though .. seems too much for a single form control to do.

seems too much for a single form control to do.

@syncguru do you want to go on using the text field or do you want to drop the create tag functionality?

I want to drop the create tag functionality.
Ok for me, as I don't like that much creating tags on the fly, typically ending in lots of tags and typos in tag names.

But the functionality has been requested in requirements specification [1]

as well as an input box to enter further tags to be added

@vboctor @dregad @cproensa what do you think?

same for me

But the functionality has been requested

maybe a side icon for new tags (which open link in new window to page manage_tags_page.php)

I want to drop the create tag functionality.

How will end-users be able to create new tags then ?

While I agree that creating them on the fly has drawbacks as explained by atrol, this is how it's done in many other tools (e.g. Wordpress, ServiceNow, ...)
