Working with Tag Editor

Tags are words or phrases that act as metadata for identifying and organizing your AWS resources. A resource can have up to 50 user-applied tags. It can also have read-only system tags. Each tag consists of a key and one optional value. For more information, see AWS Tagging Strategies in AWS Answers, and Using Cost Allocation Tags in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.

You can add tags to resources when you create the resource. You can use the resource's service console or API to add, change, or remove those tags one resource at a time. To add tags to—or edit or delete tags of—multiple resources at once, use Tag Editor. With Tag Editor, you search for the resources that you want to tag, and then manage tags for the resources in your search results.

To start Tag Editor

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console.

  2. On the navigation bar, choose Resource Groups, and then choose Tag Editor.

Not all resources can have tags applied. For information about which resources Tag Editor supports, see Supported Resources for Tag Editor Tagging. If a resource type that you want to tag is not supported, be sure to let AWS know by choosing the Feedback tool in the lower left corner of the console window.

For information about permissions and roles that are required to tag resources, see Set Up Permissions.
