AWS Certificate Manager
API Reference (API Version 2015-12-08)


Remove one or more tags from an ACM Certificate. A tag consists of a key-value pair. If you do not specify the value portion of the tag when calling this function, the tag will be removed regardless of value. If you specify a value, the tag is removed only if it is associated with the specified value.

To add tags to a certificate, use the AddTagsToCertificate action. To view all of the tags that have been applied to a specific ACM Certificate, use the ListTagsForCertificate action.
