    @Gupta, Rajesh Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query!

    For next semester we plan to be able to ‘add’ tags but, not have them indexed. I don't have ETA for now (Index-Tags on ADLS).

    Additional information: I’m pleased to announce that Blob index tags is now generally available! Blob index tags solves a problem that today requires customers to add a separate DB in addition to blob storage to provide query capabilities to find specific objects. Blob index tags reduces the complexity of having to add a DB and think through concurrency by allowing user meta data to be indexed and used directly on the blobs themselves. Blob index tags is one of the app-dev primitives that will make it easier for 1st and 3rd party customers to develop solutions on top of blob storage. Capabilities such as this speed up adoption of blob storage for application development For a good overview, read this.

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
