Q: What’s resource tagging?
Resource tagging allows you to create tags that can be applied to any resources you target. Some of the uses of resource tagging include grouping, tracking and scheduling your resources via particular tags. Tags are applied as key-value pair.
- A key is an attribute or category you can assign to a resource.
- The value is more granular data related to that attribute or category. The value is often not a mandatory field and can, in most instances, be left empty.

Q: How do I create tags?
There are two steps you need to take to tag your resources.
Q: Can a tag collection contain more than one tag?
A collection can contain as many tags as you like. You must have a minimum of one to create a collection.
Q: What happens if I don’t select a target for a tag collection I’ve created?
Adding a tag collection will not, in itself, be useful until you apply it to targeted resources. The tags will only be applied when targets are specified.
Q: Can I apply a tag to multiple resources?
Yes. Each target can be as wide as an entire region, resource group or type.
You can also add multiple targets to a collection.
Q: Can I move targets between tag collections?
Yes, you can move a target from one collection to another. Simply edit the target and assign it to another collection.
