Why is asking a question so hard - required primary tag?

I am trying to ask a question about Web IDE error on Questions & Answers but I am continuously getting error "Incompatible primary tag and language" when I chose the required primary tag, I have tried different tags "SAP Cloud Platform Web IDE", etc... But there is no luck! The language is English by the way! Any comment, suggestion? Why asking a question is so hard and I am getting this nonsense error?

Let me try this question, this time I chose "Using SAP.com" as the primary tag.

    I tried changing the tag of your post and got the same error "Incompatible primary tag and language"

    Those tags should have been renamed recently, for me it still shows with HANA in the name.

    I will give an alert to the SME

    Hi Tuncay, you can't just type in stuff into Primary Tag field. You can only select from the dropdown. As soon as you type more than 3 characters, you'll get a dropdown with suggested tags (it can be a bit slow). Now there are way too many tags at the moment and it might be problematic finding the right one. There is the old SCN space vs. tag mapping spreadsheet somewhere on SCN. But in a nutshell - pick a tag from the list and it will work.

    but somehow you were able to post this question, so what was the difference? Did you just try to force your own primary tag to go through or did you pick the primary tag from the list that appears while typing (which is only way to assign primary tags)

    Try it again, just type IDE and space and you will get a small list of tags with IDE in the name

    You can find the list of primary tags here: http://sapassets.edgesuite.net/tools/SAP-Community-Tags.xlsx

    I am closing this question. It seems the issue has been fixed and we can able to use new "SAP Cloud Platform" primary tags. Thank you all.

    Yes, I am successful for this question but I tried again after posting my real question about Web IDE by opening a new page, but I didn't work, same error! I chose the tag from the list. Weird! I gave up, I maybe try again later!

    I tried today again with "development tools for SAP Cloud Platform" but I got the same error "Incompatible primary tag and language"., but when I chose the tag ""Using SAP.com" I have successfully submitted my question, here: Web IDE Plugin Error?

    So it seems there is an issue/bug with "development tools for SAP Cloud Platform" and other cloud tags, because I tried many other tags as well.

    Any comments?

    Jürgen, great move! I am glad to see it's a bug, not specific to me! Yes,I think it's related to recent naming change from "SAP HANA Cloud Platform" to "SAP Cloud Platform". Thanks.

    Hi Jelana, thank you for the answer. This is what I exactly did but I got the error. As Jürgen pointed out it seems there is an error for some tags!
