Tag permissions and new gui tag controls

Do the new abilities to add/remove tags in bs 4.7 come with permissions?  We are currently protecting release tags with a pre receive hook.  How can I do the same thing when the gui is used to manage tags?

When tags are created/deleted through the UI or REST, a TagCreationRequestedEvent/TagDeletionRequestedEvent is published. You can listen for this event and block tag creation by calling cancel(KeyedMessage message) on the event. The message you provide will be displayed in the UI or the REST response to notify the caller of the reason why the tag creation was blocked.



yep.  that's what I assumed the answer would be for the "enterprise" solution.  thanks.
