New API Documentation - Developer Preview Available

We are excited to announce the developer preview of our new API documentation for AWS SDK for JavaScript v3. Please follow instructions on the landing page to leave us your feedback.

Class AddTagsToCertificateCommandProtected

Adds one or more tags to an ACM certificate. Tags are labels that you can use to identify and organize your Amazon Web Services resources. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value. You specify the certificate on input by its Amazon Resource Name (ARN). You specify the tag by using a key-value pair.

You can apply a tag to just one certificate if you want to identify a specific characteristic of that certificate, or you can apply the same tag to multiple certificates if you want to filter for a common relationship among those certificates. Similarly, you can apply the same tag to multiple resources if you want to specify a relationship among those resources. For example, you can add the same tag to an ACM certificate and an Elastic Load Balancing load balancer to indicate that they are both used by the same website. For more information, see Tagging ACM certificates.

To remove one or more tags, use the RemoveTagsFromCertificate action. To view all of the tags that have been applied to the certificate, use the ListTagsForCertificate action.


Use a bare-bones client and the command you need to make an API call.

import { ACMClient, AddTagsToCertificateCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-acm"; // ES Modules import
// const { ACMClient, AddTagsToCertificateCommand } = require("@aws-sdk/client-acm"); // CommonJS import
const client = new ACMClient(config);
const input = { // AddTagsToCertificateRequest
CertificateArn: "STRING_VALUE", // required
Tags: [ // TagList // required
{ // Tag
Key: "STRING_VALUE", // required
const command = new AddTagsToCertificateCommand(input);
const response = await client.send(command);
// {};
