Tagging report groups in AWS CodeBuild - AWS CodeBuild

Tagging report groups in AWS CodeBuild

A tag is a custom attribute label that you or AWS assigns to an AWS resource. Each AWS tag has two parts:

  • A tag key (for example, CostCenter, Environment, Project, or Secret). Tag keys are case sensitive.

  • An optional field known as a tag value (for example, 111122223333, Production, or a team name). Omitting the tag value is the same as using an empty string. Like tag keys, tag values are case sensitive.

Together these are known as key-value pairs. For limits on the number of tags you can have on a report group and restrictions on tag keys and values, see Tags.

Tags help you identify and organize your AWS resources. Many AWS services support tagging, so you can assign the same tag to resources from different services to indicate that the resources are related. For example, you can assign the same tag to a CodeBuild report group that you assign to an Amazon S3 bucket. For more information about using tags, see the Tagging best practices whitepaper.

In CodeBuild, the primary resources are the report group and the project. You can use the CodeBuild console, the AWS CLI, CodeBuild APIs, or AWS SDKs to add, manage, and remove tags for a report group. In addition to identifying, organizing, and tracking your report group with tags, you can use tags in IAM policies to help control who can view and interact with your report group. For examples of tag-based access policies, see Using tags to control access to AWS CodeBuild resources.
