Copying Tags to Your ElastiCache Resource

When you perform certain operations on your ElastiCache resources using the ElastiCache API or AWS AWS CLI, if tags exist on the resource the tags are copied. The following list identifies those operations and what copying occurs.

  • CopySnapshot or copy-snapshot – When you make a copy of a backup, if there are any tags on the source backup, they are copied to the copy.

  • CreateSnapshot or create-snapshot – When you create a backup, if there are any tags on the source cluster, they are copied to the backup.

  • RestoreFromSnapshot or restore-from-snapshot – When you restore a cluster from a backup created by ElastiCache, if there are any tags on the backup, they are copied to the restored cluster.

  • DeleteSnapshot or delete-snapshot – When you delete a backup, if there are any tags on the backup, they are deleted with the backup.

  • DeleteCluster or delete-cluster – When you delete a cluster, any tags on the cluster are deleted with the cluster. However, if you make a final backup, the tags are copied to the backup.
