add-tags

Description

Adds the specified tags to the specified load balancer. Each load balancer can have a maximum of 10 tags.

Each tag consists of a key and an optional value. If a tag with the same key is already associated with the load balancer, AddTags updates its value.

For more information, see Tag Your Classic Load Balancer in the Classic Load Balancers Guide .

The tags.

]

--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.
