The following guide describes how you can configure taxonomies in your Oro application which located under System > Tag Management > Taxonomies in the main menu.


Taxonomy is a way to group things together. In your Oro application, you can group tags in taxonomies, and to every taxonomy you can assign a distinctive color to clearly identify different groups of tags that might serve different purposes.


See a short demo on how to create taxonomies, or continue reading the guidance below.

Create Taxonomy
