When a rule generates an alert, if the rule has tags that don't start with the dollar sign, i.e. $, these tags are automatically applied to the alerts.
For example, let's take a look at this rule:
sector:europe has been applied.
Now, let's look at an alert generated by this rule:
As we can see, the tag is automatically applied to this alert.
As well as all other triggered alerts by this rule:
Additionally, if the rule flagged an entity, and this entity had tags that did not start with $, these tags would be applied on the alert as well.
Note that rules remember tags by type and name. This means that if a tag is create with type A and name B, applied to a rule, and then deleted globally, if another tag with type A and name B is created, then it will be re-applied to the rule.
