eb tags

Description

Add, delete, update, and list tags of an Elastic Beanstalk resource.

For details about resource tagging in Elastic Beanstalk, see Tagging AWS Elastic Beanstalk Application Resources.

Syntax

eb tags [environment-name] [--resource ARN] -l | --list

eb tags [environment-name] [--resource ARN] -a | --add key1=value1[,key2=value2 ...]

eb tags [environment-name] [--resource ARN] -u | --update key1=value1[,key2=value2 ...]

eb tags [environment-name] [--resource ARN] -d | --delete key1[,key2 ...]

You can combine the --add, --update, and --delete subcommand options in a single command. At least one of them is required. You can't combined any of these three subcommand options with --list.

Without any additional arguments, all of these commands list or modify tags of the default environment in the current directory's application. With an environment-name argument, the commands list or modify tags of that environment. With the --resource option, the commands list or modify tags of any Elastic Beanstalk resource – an application, an environment, an application version, a saved configuration, or a custom platform version. Specify the resource by its Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

Options

None of these options are required. If you run eb create without any options, you are prompted to enter or select a value for each setting.

Name

Description

-l

or

--list

List all tags that are currently applied to the resource.

-a key1=value1[,key2=value2 ...]

or

--add key1=value1[,key2=value2 ...]

Apply new tags to the resource. Specify tags as a comma-separated list of key=value pairs. You can't specify keys of existing tags.

Valid values: See Tagging Resources.

-u key1=value1[,key2=value2 ...]

or

--update key1=value1[,key2=value2 ...]

Update the values of existing resource tags. Specify tags as a comma-separated list of key=value pairs. You must specify keys of existing tags.

Valid values: See Tagging Resources.

-d key1[,key2 ...]

or

--delete key1[,key2 ...]

Delete existing resource tags. Specify tags as a comma-separated list of keys. You must specify keys of existing tags.

Valid values: See Tagging Resources.

-r region

or

--region region

The AWS Region in which your resource exists.

Default: the configured default region.

For the list of values you can specify for this option, see AWS Elastic Beanstalk in Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.

--resource ARN

The ARN of the resource that the command modifies or lists tags for. If not specified, the command refers to the (default or specified) environment in the current directory's application.

Valid values: See one of the sub-topic of Tagging Resources that is specific to the resource you're interested in. These topics show how the resource's ARN is constructed and explain how to get a list of this resource's ARNs that exist for your application or account.

Output

The --list subcommand option displays a list of the resource's tags. The output shows both the tags that Elastic Beanstalk applies by default and your custom tags.

$ eb tags --list Showing tags for environment 'MyApp-env': Key Value Name MyApp-env elasticbeanstalk:environment-id e-63cmxwjaut elasticbeanstalk:environment-name MyApp-env mytag tagvalue tag2 2nd value

The --add, --update, and --delete subcommand options, when successful, don't have any output. You can add the --verbose option to see detailed output of the command's activity.

$ eb tags --verbose --update "mytag=tag value" Updated Tags: Key Value mytag tag value

Examples

The following command successfully adds a tag with the key tag1 and the value value1 to the application's default environment, and at the same time deletes the tag tag2.

$ eb tags --add tag1=value1 --delete tag2

The following command successfully adds a tag to a saved configuration within an application.

$ eb tags --add tag1=value1 \ --resource "arn:aws:elasticbeanstalk:us-east-2:my-account-id:configurationtemplate/my-app/my-template"

The following command fails because it tries to update a nonexisting tag.

$ eb tags --update tag3=newval ERROR: Tags with the following keys can't be updated because they don't exist: tag3

The following command fails because it tries to update and delete the same key.

$ eb tags --update mytag=newval --delete mytag ERROR: A tag with the key 'mytag' is specified for both '--delete' and '--update'. Each tag can be either deleted or updated in a single operation.
