Reproducing the Issue

Tags are imported using the Legacy Data Import - Tag Association.


But it is not available in the Tag Cloud in Candidate Tag Search.



  • The tags associated via import job will not be available in the tag cloud for search since it is a legacy data.
  • It is just to create a library of tags which serves for the pupose of type-ahead while tagging candidate.



This is the expected system behavior when importing tags via legacy data.
