Managing File System Tags

You can create new tags, update values of existing tags, or delete tags associated with a file system.

Using the Console

The console lists existing tags associated with a file system. You can add new tags, change values of existing tags, or delete existing tags.

  1. Open the Amazon Elastic File System console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/efs/.

  2. Choose the file system.

  3. Choose Action and then choose Manage Tags.

  4. On the Manage Tags page, add or delete tags. For each new tag, provide a Key and its Value.

  5. Choose Save.

Using the AWS CLI

You can use the create-tags CLI command to add new tags, delete-tags to delete existing tags, or use the describe-tags command to retrieve tags associated with a file system. Each CLI command corresponds to the CreateTags, DeleteTags, and DescribeTags Amazon EFS operations.

For an example walkthrough of the AWS CLI commands that you can use to add and list tags, see Step 2.1: Create Amazon EFS File System.

The following delete-tags command removes the tag keys test1 and test2 from the tag list of the specified file system.

Copy
$ aws efs \ delete-tags \ --file-system-id fs-c5a1446c \ --tag-keys "test1" "test2" \ --region us-west-2 \ --profile adminuser
