Tagging AWS Cloud Map Resources

A tag is a label that you assign to an AWS resource. Each tag consists of a key and a value, both of which you define. For example, the key might be "domain" and the value might be "example.com". You can use tags for a variety of purposes; one common use is to categorize and track your AWS Cloud Map costs. When you apply tags to AWS Cloud Map hosted zones, domains, and health checks, AWS generates a cost allocation report as a comma-separated value (CSV) file with your usage and costs aggregated by your tags. You can apply tags that represent business categories (such as cost centers, application names, or owners) to organize your costs across multiple services. For more information about using tags for cost allocation, see Use Cost Allocation Tags in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.

For ease of use and best results, use Tag Editor on the AWS Management Console, which provides a central, unified way to create and manage your tags. For more information, see Working with Tag Editor in Getting Started with the AWS Management Console. You can also apply tags on the AWS Cloud Map console or by using the AWS Cloud Map API.
