Tagging Operations

This section describes how to use the DynamoDB console or CLI to add, list, edit, or delete tags. You can then activate these user-defined tags so that they appear on the Billing and Cost Management console for cost allocation tracking. For more information, see Cost Allocation Reports.

For bulk editing, you can also use the Tag Editor in the AWS Management Console. For more information, see Working with Tag Editor.

To use the API instead, see Amazon DynamoDB API Reference.
