import com.google.cloud.datacatalog.v1.DataCatalogClient;
import com.google.cloud.datacatalog.v1.FieldType;
import com.google.cloud.datacatalog.v1.LocationName;
import com.google.cloud.datacatalog.v1.TagTemplate;
import com.google.cloud.datacatalog.v1.TagTemplateField;
import java.io.IOException;

// Sample to create tag template
public class CreateTagTemplate {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    // TODO(developer): Replace these variables before running the sample.
    String projectId = "MY_PROJECT_ID";
    String location = "MY_LOCATION";
    LocationName locationName = LocationName.of(projectId, location);
    String tagTemplateId = "MY_TAG_TEMPLATE_ID";
    TagTemplateField sourceField =
        TagTemplateField.newBuilder()
            .setDisplayName("Your display name")
            .setType(
                FieldType.newBuilder().setPrimitiveType(FieldType.PrimitiveType.STRING).build())
            .build();
    TagTemplate tagTemplate =
        TagTemplate.newBuilder()
            .setDisplayName("Your display name")
            .putFields("sourceField", sourceField)
            .build();
    createTagTemplate(locationName, tagTemplateId, tagTemplate);
  }

  public static void createTagTemplate(
      LocationName name, String tagTemplateId, TagTemplate template) throws IOException {
    // Initialize client that will be used to send requests. This client only needs to be created
    // once, and can be reused for multiple requests. After completing all of your requests, call
    // the "close" method on the client to safely clean up any remaining background resources.
    try (DataCatalogClient client = DataCatalogClient.create()) {
      CreateTagTemplateRequest request =
          CreateTagTemplateRequest.newBuilder()
              .setParent(name.toString())
              .setTagTemplateId(tagTemplateId)
              .setTagTemplate(template)
