Description

Associates the specified tags to a resource with the specified resourceArn . If existing tags on a resource are not specified in the request parameters, they are not changed. When a resource is deleted, the tags associated with that resource are deleted as well.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  tag-resource
--resource-arn <value>
--tags <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource to which to add tags. Currently, the supported resources are Amazon ECS capacity providers, tasks, services, task definitions, clusters, and container instances.

--tags (list)

The tags to add to the resource. A tag is an array of key-value pairs.

The following basic restrictions apply to tags:

  • Maximum number of tags per resource - 50
  • For each resource, each tag key must be unique, and each tag key can have only one value.
  • Maximum key length - 128 Unicode characters in UTF-8
  • Maximum value length - 256 Unicode characters in UTF-8
  • If your tagging schema is used across multiple services and resources, remember that other services may have restrictions on allowed characters. Generally allowed characters are: letters, numbers, and spaces representable in UTF-8, and the following characters: + - = . _ : / @.
  • Tag keys and values are case-sensitive.
  • Do not use aws: , AWS: , or any upper or lowercase combination of such as a prefix for either keys or values as it is reserved for AWS use. You cannot edit or delete tag keys or values with this prefix. Tags with this prefix do not count against your tags per resource limit.

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.

This command produces no output.

To add multiple tags to a resource

--resource-arn arn:aws:ecs:us-west-2:123456789012:cluster/MyCluster \
--tags key=key1,value=value1 key=key2,value=value2 key=key3,value=value3

This command produces no output.
