Filter semantic type

In case the list of semantic types is long, you can filter those using:
  • The associated tags: Tags represent the category to which the semantic type belongs. You can associate multiple tags to a semantic type. To filter using tags, click the Tags drop-down on the right side above the semantic type list, and select the required tag.
  • Name or description of the semantic type: To filter using the name of the semantic type or its description, write it in the type-ahead text box beside the Tags drop-down.
