Adding and removing tags for environments

You can add tags to environments to help organize and search for the resources you care most about.

Use tags as search terms to quickly find environments. For example, you can add a webserver tag to all of the environments that contain a web server. You can further add tags to indicate what webserver is installed: apache, nginx, tux, etc.

  • Tags are single-value strings, well-suited for adding metadata to resources and for searching and filtering.
  • Use tags for common attributes that you care about across your environments.
  • Use simple and easy to read text strings for tags.
  • Tags have a 255-character limit.
  • A single environment can have a maximum of 1,000 tags.
  • Tags are not case-sensitive (for example, ABCD, abcd, and aBcD are treated as the same value).

Tags do not appear in usage reports.
