Support for logical AND with vCenter tags based jobs

Post by k00laid » Jun 21, 2016 2:27 pm

My understanding is that at this point while logical OR expressions for tags are supported logical AND is not, is this something we could expect to see in the future? Today I essentially have to create multiple hierarchies in my vCenter tags setup to support different scenarios for VBR (local, off-site, cloudconnect, RPO24,RPO48, etc), it would be nice to be able to combine those to include combinations into a single job.

I would like to see this, too. I am new to jobs by tag, but I envisioned setting up something like:

* Organization:
** Ops
** Dev
** Sales

* RPO
** 24h
** 12h
** NoRPO

* Datacenter
*** AAA
*** BBB
*** CCC

One policy might be "Ops VMs in AAA with 12h RPO". To create a job to match that, I would LIKE to select the tags Ops AND AAA AND 12h. However, selecting those three gives Ops OR AAA OR 12h, which matches the wrong set. Instead, I've defined a single tag category with a few tags underneath:

* VeeamPolicy
** Ops12h
** Ops24h
** Dev12h
** Dev24h
** Sales24h
** NoRPO

I can then create a job matching the tag Ops12h and exclude the datacenter objects for BBB and CCC, then another one that excludes AAA and CCC, etc. That works, but seems less than ideal, esp if we add another DC in the future. I'll have to touch every job to add exclusion, or create even more tags that are locked down to each datacenter, etc.

I would also like to see this implemented, and don't forget about replication jobs. It would be great to be able to tag a VM with an RPO as well as a quiesce tag. I have some VMs that handle stun better than others. At the moment we replicate in 'crash consistent' (i.e. no quiesce), but it would be great to tag VMs that either handle the quiesce well, or for ones where the app owner might not care about the stun (e.g. an internal status page that is only checked once an hour or so).

+1 any progress on this? For the moment rnelson0's trick of excluding datacenters will do for me.

Has this been implemented yet? Would like to be able to do multiple tags with basic logical operators. TAG1 AND TAG2 = Backup This VM

Hi James, so far this didn't get high enough in our priority list.

Thanks for the update, I think this would be a very valuable addition to make tagging simpler and probably more widely used. I wouldn't think it would be too difficult to add also.
