Querying VCentre tags

Im developing a flow to query if a certain vm tag exists on a virtual machine. If i use the powershell command Get-Vm computerName -Tag XXXXXX i get a list of servers with the specified tag.

 

If i then use the OOB operation in OO to query the computer to confirm whether OO can retrieve the same info using(/Virtualization [1.1.0]/Library/Integrations/VMware/VMware Virtual Infrastructure and vSphere/Virtual Machines/Get Virtual Machine) I cannot see the desired info (as displayed using the powershell cmd).

 

I am curretly trying to use the /Virtualization [1.1.0]/Library/Integrations/VMware/VMware Virtual Infrastructure and vSphere/Utilities/Advanced Search operation to perform the same search but having issues setting the following inputs

 

I cant locate the relevant info in the  VMWare Integration Guide to configure this advanced search, is anyone able to assist me in performing the particular query?

 

Many Thanks :)
