TagResource - Amazon GameLift


Assigns a tag to a GameLift resource. AWS resource tags provide an additional management tool set. You can use tags to organize resources, create IAM permissions policies to manage access to groups of resources, customize AWS cost breakdowns, etc. This operation handles the permissions necessary to manage tags for the following GameLift resource types:

  • Build

  • Script

  • Fleet

  • Alias

  • GameSessionQueue

  • MatchmakingConfiguration

  • MatchmakingRuleSet

To add a tag to a resource, specify the unique ARN value for the resource and provide a tag list containing one or more tags. The operation succeeds even if the list includes tags that are already assigned to the specified resource.
