Managing Resource Tags Using the Console

The following is an example of the Manage Tags window for an Amazon Redshift resource, such as a cluster or a parameter group.

You use the Add Tags section to add key pairs to an Amazon Redshift resource. When you begin entering a key pair in the Add Tags section, a new row will appear so that you can add another key pair, and so on. For more information about allowed characters for keys and values, see Tagging Requirements.

If you decide that you don't want to add a particular tag to the resource, you can remove it from the Add Tags section by clicking the X in the row. Once you have specified the key pairs that you want to add, you apply the changes so that they are associated with the resource.

After you add key pairs to a resource, they display in the Applied Tags section; this is the tag set for the resource. You can modify a tag value, but you can't modify the key name. You can, however, delete a key if you no longer need it for the resource.

You can view the tags for a resource by reviewing the Applied Tags section of the Manage Tags window. Alternatively, you can quickly view tags by navigating to a resource type in the navigation pane, and then expanding the resource in the list to view the Tags section. The following is an example of a cluster expanded to show various properties, including tags associated with the cluster.
