Importing to Multiple Hosts

Tags can be imported to multiple hosts with one import. dotCMS will use the Host Id column (and the Tag Storage setting set on each Host), to properly place imported tags to the correct tag repository.

To import tags into the Global Tag Repository, set the Host Id column to SYSTEM_HOST or ALL_HOSTS (as shown in the image below).
