Updating libraries with tags



We are adding sensors to libraries via tags successfully. The issue is when the tag is removed from a sensor the sensor is not automatically removed from the library.

Shouldn't the sensor supposed to be automatically removed?

Current settings: Library: servers_notification_1 Library node: servers_notification_1 Node settings: > Linked Object: Cluster Probe > Node Type: Show a collection of (filtered) sensors in the library > Filter by Type: Show all sensor types > Filter by Status: Show all sensor states > Filter by tags: show objects with specific tags only > Selected: tag_servers_notification_1 > Filter by Priority: Show all priorities

thank you for your KB-Post. Actually the sensor should of course be removed, but please bear in mind that there may be a small time delay of up to one minute.
Also, please check if the tag is still set on the parent device or parent groups, the sensor will inherit it.

best regards.
