Is it possible to add more custom property in the services, such as:Tags , Description…


#2

Possible? Yes that could be developed. As it stands now, no Services do not have such metadata built into them(which as a core resource I would rather not see Kong start including that, just creates bloat imo). Plugins that store extra info around your services in the db would be how I would say to do it if you need that.

We have plans to add support for tags in the very near future. There exists a PoC branch that was co-contributed by Marco and myself:

It does have a couple of limitations though (Cassandra-only, ALLOW FILTERING usage, …), so last week we drafted a new implementation internally, that we are planning on iterating upon very soon.

There are other plans for such “metadata” attributes on entities (such as descriptions, or arbitrary key/value pairs, TBD), but no details on the timeline for this.
