Get all tags used by assets within given project

Is there a a way to query a unique list of tags used by the assets within a given project?

Is this the best way to do it??

# Example: Get all tags for assets in project
sg = ShotgunUtils.createConnection()
result = sg.summarize(entity_type='Asset',
		['project', 'is', {'type': 'Project', 'id': 583}]
	summary_fields=[{'field':'id', 'type':'count'}],
	grouping=[{'field': 'tags', 'type': 'exact', 'direction': 'asc'}]

from pprint import pprint
tags = [x['group_name'] for x in result['groups']]
print tags

Does anyone have any feedback on this?

Looks good to me. Does it work as expected?
Please please use print(tags) to be py3 compatible :slight_smile:


Hi I’m sorry, no one responded sooner.
I agree with @mmoshev though, I think what you’ve got there is what I would have done as well.

I’ve never used ShotgunUtils. I’ve read about it and I assume you use this instead shotgun_api3 because you’re within an app. If it’s not the reason, I’m curious to know why! :slight_smile:

However, I would have done the same with shotgun_api3.

ShotgunUtils is just a custom python module I’ve written. it doesn’t do anything specific other than handle connections to shotgun.
