[ aws . sns ]



Add tags to the specified Amazon SNS topic. For an overview, see Amazon SNS Tags in the Amazon SNS Developer Guide .

When you use topic tags, keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Adding more than 50 tags to a topic isn't recommended.
  • Tags don't have any semantic meaning. Amazon SNS interprets tags as character strings.
  • Tags are case-sensitive.
  • A new tag with a key identical to that of an existing tag overwrites the existing tag.
  • Tagging actions are limited to 10 TPS per AWS account, per AWS region. If your application requires a higher throughput, file a technical support request .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--resource-arn (string)

The ARN of the topic to which to add tags.

--tags (list)

The tags to be added to the specified topic. A tag consists of a required key and an optional value.

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.
