cis tagging tag association: list attachable tags

Fetches the array of attachable tags for the given object, omitting the tags that have already been attached. Criteria for attachability is calculated based on tagging cardinality (cis.tagging.category_model.cardinality) and associability (cis.tagging.category_model.associable_types) constructs. To invoke this operation, you need the read privilege on the input object. The array will only contain those tags for which you have read privileges.
