Tag key transactions

In New Relic APM, you can assign tags to key transactions.

Tags are metadata associated with transactions. They're useful for applying to transactions that have things in common. For example, you might apply a checkout tag to all key transactions that are part of the checkout process. Then you can filter by checkout to see all of those transactions in one place.

Access to this feature depends on your subscription level.
