Finding Untagged Resources


This documentation is for classic Tag Editor, which has been deprecated. For more information about the new Tag Editor experience, see Working with Tag Editor in the AWS Resource Groups User Guide.

You might find it useful to know what resources in your account have yet to be tagged. You might also want to know what resources have tag keys but no tag values. You can use Tag Editor to find these resources.

  1. Sign into the AWS Management Console and open Tag Editor at

  2. For Regions, select the regions that you want to include.

  3. For Resource types, select the resource types that you want to search for.

  4. For Tags, select a tag key that you want to apply to resources that do not already have it.

  5. In the next box, do either or both of the following, depending on your goal:

    • Choose Not tagged to find resources with no tags.


    • Choose Empty value to find resources that are tagged with your specified key but that have no tag value.

  6. Choose Find Resources to have Tag Editor find all such resources and list them at the bottom of the page.

  7. (Optional) Use any of the methods discussed in Tagging Resources to add tags to the resources in the search results.
