How can I create a resource group using a tag substring or wildcards?

Resource Groups lets you include resources in your resource group by identifying a tag substring. This is similar to appending a wildcard to the beginning and end of a string in the tag value field.

To use this feature, begin typing a string in the tag value field of the Resource Group create or edit forms and select the Contains: option to find values that contain the characters that you typed.

For example, a search using Contains: Prod value for the "Name" tag key would return a resource tagged with "FooApp-DB-Prod" as the value in the "Name" tag key.

Note: Tag search is case-sensitive.
