Adding and removing tags for templates

Tags help you organize and search for templates. Any user can add a tag to a template.

  • 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).
