[ aws . elasticache ]



Lists all cost allocation tags currently on the named resource. A cost allocation tag is a key-value pair where the key is case-sensitive and the value is optional. You can use cost allocation tags to categorize and track your AWS costs.

If the cluster is not in the available state, ListTagsForResource returns an error.

You can have a maximum of 50 cost allocation tags on an ElastiCache resource. For more information, see Monitoring Costs with Tags .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--resource-name (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource for which you want the list of tags, for example arn:aws:elasticache:us-west-2:0123456789:cluster:myCluster or arn:aws:elasticache:us-west-2:0123456789:snapshot:mySnapshot .

For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces .

--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.


To list events

The following list-tags-for-resource example lists the tags for a cache cluster.

aws elasticache list-tags-for-resource \
    --resource-name "arn:aws:elasticache:us-east-1:123456789012:cluster:my-cluster"


    "TagList": [
            "Key": "Project",
            "Value": "querySpeedUp"
            "Key": "Environment",
            "Value": "PROD"

For more information, see `Listing Tags Using the AWS CLI <>`__ in the Amazon ElastiCache for Redis User Guide.
