Lists the Auto Scaling group tags.

You can use filters to limit results when describing tags. For example, you can query for tags of a particular Auto Scaling group. You can specify multiple values for a filter. A tag must match at least one of the specified values for it to be included in the results.

You can also specify multiple filters. The result includes information for a particular tag only if it matches all your filters. If there's no match, no special message is returned.
