tag-resource

Description

Adds the specified tags to the specified AWS Direct Connect resource. Each resource can have a maximum of 50 tags.

Each tag consists of a key and an optional value. If a tag with the same key is already associated with the resource, this action updates its value.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource.

--tags (list)

The tags to add.

Shorthand Syntax:

key=string,value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "key": "string",
    "value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
