tag-resource

Description

Attaches tags to a secret. Tags consist of a key name and a value. Tags are part of the secret's metadata. They are not associated with specific versions of the secret. This operation appends tags to the existing list of tags.

The following restrictions apply to tags:

  • Maximum number of tags per secret: 50
  • Maximum key length: 127 Unicode characters in UTF-8
  • Maximum value length: 255 Unicode characters in UTF-8
  • Tag keys and values are case sensitive.
  • Do not use the aws: prefix in your tag names or values because Amazon Web Services reserves it for Amazon Web Services use. You can't edit or delete tag names or values with this prefix. Tags with this prefix do not count against your tags per secret limit.
  • If you use your tagging schema across multiple services and resources, other services might have restrictions on allowed characters. Generally allowed characters: letters, spaces, and numbers representable in UTF-8, plus the following special characters: + - = . _ : / @.

Warning

If you use tags as part of your security strategy, then adding or removing a tag can change permissions. If successfully completing this operation would result in you losing your permissions for this secret, then the operation is blocked and returns an Access Denied error.

Secrets Manager generates a CloudTrail log entry when you call this action. Do not include sensitive information in request parameters because it might be logged. For more information, see Logging Secrets Manager events with CloudTrail .

Required permissions: secretsmanager:TagResource . For more information, see IAM policy actions for Secrets Manager and Authentication and access control in Secrets Manager .

Options

--secret-id (string)

The identifier for the secret to attach tags to. You can specify either the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or the friendly name of the secret.

For an ARN, we recommend that you specify a complete ARN rather than a partial ARN. See Finding a secret from a partial ARN .

--tags (list)

The tags to attach to the secret as a JSON text string argument. Each element in the list consists of a Key and a Value .

For storing multiple values, we recommend that you use a JSON text string argument and specify key/value pairs. For more information, see Specifying parameter values for the Amazon Web Services CLI in the Amazon Web Services CLI User Guide.

(structure)

A structure that contains information about a tag.

Key -> (string)

The key identifier, or name, of the tag.

Value -> (string)

The string value associated with the key of the tag.

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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Example 1: To add a tag to a secret

The following example shows how to attach a tag with shorthand syntax.

aws secretsmanager tag-resource \
    --secret-id MyTestSecret \
    --tags Key=FirstTag,Value=FirstValue

This command produces no output.

For more information, see Tag your secrets in the Secrets Manager User Guide.

Example 2: To add multiple tags to a secret

The following tag-resource example attaches two key-value tags to a secret.

aws secretsmanager tag-resource \
    --secret-id MyTestSecret \
    --tags '[{"Key": "FirstTag", "Value": "FirstValue"}, {"Key": "SecondTag", "Value": "SecondValue"}]'

This command produces no output.

For more information, see Tag secrets in the Secrets Manager User Guide.
