How to view "git tag" message?

Kevin Broadey May 01, 2012

When I tag a git commit using SourceTree, it allows me to enter a message so that I get an "annotated" tag. However, I cannot see how to read that message using the SourceTree GUI. All I ever seem to be able to read is the message associated with the commit.

You're right, this isn't displayed anywhere right now, that's an oversight. I'm not sure anyone's actually used that advanced tag option before!

Is there any progress on this ? I really want to see the tag message as what (features) were included in the tag.

Come on, 6 years later and still this simple but valuable feature that you'd expect to be included is still not there?

Even STASH doesn't show the "git tag" annotated messages..

Will it be addressed in coming release?

+1, Just stumbled onto this.. in local bitbucket server (new name for 'stash'), you can only view the tag names in the 'branches' dropdown, but you can't view the 'message' attached to the tag.
