How can I get hero lab to pull tags off the source a thing is bootstrapped to?

Say I have a "class ability" that gets bootstrapped by a class. I have setup an identity tag on the class I'd like to pull into the class ability through a script. How would I accomplish this?

RavenX Pronouns: She/Her

Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.

I am far too busy these days to answer emails. If you message me here there is no guarantee I will get back to you at all.

As long as the ability is not unique, you can use
perform root.pulltags[Group.?]

If it's unique, you'll need to use a foreach:

foreach root in this from Class where "Whatever is appropriate"
perform eachpick.pulltags[Group.?]

Although I'd re-consider making them unique before switching things to a foreach root - just switch the abilities to user-once instead. Adding a foreach that will run on every one of a large number of abilities is wasted effort.
