Using tags on WorkSpaces Thin Client resources - Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client

Using tags on WorkSpaces Thin Client resources

You can organize and manage the resources for your WorkSpaces Thin Client by assigning your own metadata to each resource as tags. You specify a key and a value for each tag. A key can be a general category, such as "project," "owner," or "environment," with specific associated values. You can use tags as a simple yet powerful way to manage AWS resources and to organize data, including billing data.

When you add tags to an existing resource, those tags don't appear in your cost allocation report until the first day of the following month. For example, if you add tags to an existing WorkSpaces Thin Client device on July 15, the tags won't appear in your cost allocation report until August 1. For more information, see Using Cost Allocation Tags in the AWS Billing User Guide.

Note

To view your WorkSpaces Thin Client resource tags in the Cost Explorer, you must activate the tags that you have applied to your WorkSpaces Thin Client resources by following the instructions in Activating User-Defined Cost Allocation Tags in the AWS Billing User Guide.

Tags appear 24 hours after activation, but it can take 4–5 days for values associated with those tags to appear in the Cost Explorer. Additionally, to appear and provide cost data in Cost Explorer, WorkSpaces Thin Client resources that have been tagged must incur charges during that time. Cost Explorer only shows cost data from the time when the tags were activated. No historical data is available at this time.
