Tagging your AWS IoT SiteWise resources

Tagging your AWS IoT SiteWise resources provides a powerful way to categorize, manage, and retrieve organizational assets efficiently. By assigning tags, which consist of key-value pairs, you can attach descriptive metadata to your resources. The metadata from tags can be used to streamline operations. For example, in a wind farm scenario, tags allow you to label turbines with specific attributes like location, capacity, and operational status, enabling quick identification and management within AWS IoT SiteWise.

Integrating tags with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies enhances security and operational control by defining conditional access rules. This means you can specify that only users with certain tags. For example, only those tagged with a certain role or department, can access or modify particular resources.
