[ aws . elasticache ]



Adds up to 50 cost allocation tags to the named resource. A cost allocation tag is a key-value pair where the key and value are case-sensitive. You can use cost allocation tags to categorize and track your AWS costs.

When you apply tags to your ElastiCache resources, AWS generates a cost allocation report as a comma-separated value (CSV) file with your usage and costs aggregated by your tags. You can apply tags that represent business categories (such as cost centers, application names, or owners) to organize your costs across multiple services. For more information, see Using Cost Allocation Tags in Amazon ElastiCache in the ElastiCache User Guide .

--resource-name (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource to which the tags are to be added, for example arn:aws:elasticache:us-west-2:0123456789:cluster:myCluster or arn:aws:elasticache:us-west-2:0123456789:snapshot:mySnapshot .

For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces .

--tags (list)

A list of cost allocation tags to be added to this resource. A tag is a key-value pair. A tag key must be accompanied by a tag value.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
