Tag your AWS FIS resources - AWS Fault Injection Service

Tag your AWS FIS resources

A tag is a metadata label that either you or AWS assigns to an AWS resource. Each tag consists of a key and a value. For tags that you assign, you define the key and the value. For example, you might define the key as purpose and the value as test for a resource.

Tags help you do the following:

  • 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.

  • Control access to your AWS resources. For more information, see Controlling Access Using Tags in the IAM User Guide.

Tagging restrictions

The following basic restrictions apply to tags on AWS FIS resources:

  • Maximum number of tags that you can assign to a resource: 50

  • Maximum key length: 128 Unicode characters

  • Maximum value length: 256 Unicode characters

  • Valid characters for keys and values: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, space, and the following characters: _ . : / = + - and @

  • Keys and values are case sensitive

  • You cannot use aws: as a prefix for keys, because it's reserved for AWS use
