At the moment we have just over 1,000 questions tagged but my understanding is that the product ArcSDE ceased to exist many years ago when it became simply a component of the ArcGIS Server product, and for a few years the component name ArcSDE has been retired in favour of Enterprise Geodatabase.

Should we rename the tag to be called , leaving the former as a synonym of the latter?

  • ArcSDE application server can still be installed separately from ent gdb if I understand correctly. However 99% of the ArcSDE questions likely deal with ent gdb as Esri has not clearly differentiated the two

I think represents what the geodatabase component of ArcGIS Server is, more than the now outdated . ArcSDE as a product is now no-more, and so the tag doesn't really fit anymore.

This proposed tag also aligns better with the , as outlined in this answer to Should we treat [spatial-database] and [geodatabase] tags as synonyms?
