Using tags with your Amazon Monitron project - Amazon Monitron

Using tags with your Amazon Monitron project

A tag is a key-value pair that you can use to categorize your projects. For example, if you have multiple projects, you might categorize them by purpose, owner, location, or any other factor.

Use tags to:

  • Organize your projects. You can search and filter by tag. For example, you could add tags such as ‘test lab’ or ‘paint shop' to easily find those projects.

  • Identify and organize your AWS resources. Many AWS services support tagging, so you can assign the same tag to resources in different services to indicate that the resources are related. For example, you can tag a project and the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket that stores related data with the same tag.

  • Control access to your resources. You can use tags in AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) polices that control access to Amazon Monitron projects. You can attach these policies to an IAM role or user to enable tag-based access control. For more information, see Controlling access using tags in the IAM User Guide.

Each tag key must be unique within a project.

The following restrictions also apply to Amazon Monitron project tags:

  • The maximum number of tags per project is 50.

  • The maximum length of a tag key is 128 characters.

  • The maximum length of a tag value is 256 characters.

  • Valid characters for keys and values are a–z, A–Z, space, _ . : / = + - and @.

  • Tag keys and values are case sensitive.

  • The aws: prefix is reserved for AWS use.

  • If you plan to use your tagging schema across multiple services and resources, remember that other services might have different restrictions for valid characters. Refer to the documentation for that service.
