[ aws . mediastore ]



Adds tags to the specified AWS Elemental MediaStore container. Tags are key:value pairs that you can associate with AWS resources. For example, the tag key might be "customer" and the tag value might be "companyA." You can specify one or more tags to add to each container. You can add up to 50 tags to each container. For more information about tagging, including naming and usage conventions, see Tagging Resources in MediaStore .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--resource (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the container.

--tags (list)

An array of key:value pairs that you want to add to the container. You need to specify only the tags that you want to add or update. For example, suppose a container already has two tags (customer:CompanyA and priority:High). You want to change the priority tag and also add a third tag (type:Contract). For TagResource, you specify the following tags: priority:Medium, type:Contract. The result is that your container has three tags: customer:CompanyA, priority:Medium, and type:Contract.

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.


To add tags to a container

The following tag-resource example adds tag keys and values to the specified container.

aws mediastore tag-resource \
    --resource arn:aws:mediastore:us-west-2:123456789012:container/ExampleContainer \
    --tags '[{"Key": "Region", "Value": "West"}, {"Key": "Environment", "Value": "Test"}]'

This command produces no output.

For more information, see TagResource in the AWS Elemental MediaStore API Reference.
