add-tags-to-resource

Description

A tag is a key-value pair where the key and value are case-sensitive. You can use tags to categorize and track all your ElastiCache resources, with the exception of global replication group. When you add or remove tags on replication groups, those actions will be replicated to all nodes in the replication group. For more information, see Resource-level permissions .

For example, you can use cost-allocation tags to your ElastiCache resources, AWS generates a cost allocation report as a comma-separated value (CSV) file with your usage and costs aggregated by your tags. You can apply tags that represent business categories (such as cost centers, application names, or owners) to organize your costs across multiple services.

For more information, see Using Cost Allocation Tags in Amazon ElastiCache in the ElastiCache User Guide .

Synopsis

  add-tags-to-resource
--resource-name <value>
--tags <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-name (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource to which the tags are to be added, for example arn:aws:elasticache:us-west-2:0123456789:cluster:myCluster or arn:aws:elasticache:us-west-2:0123456789:snapshot:mySnapshot . ElastiCache resources are cluster and snapshot .

For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces .

--tags (list)

A list of tags to be added to this resource. A tag is a key-value pair. A tag key must be accompanied by a tag value, although null is accepted.

(structure)

A tag that can be added to an ElastiCache cluster or replication group. Tags are composed of a Key/Value pair. You can use tags to categorize and track all your ElastiCache resources, with the exception of global replication group. When you add or remove tags on replication groups, those actions will be replicated to all nodes in the replication group. A tag with a null Value is permitted.

Key -> (string)

The key for the tag. May not be null.

Value -> (string)

The tag’s value. May be null.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To add tags to a resource

The following add-tags-to-resource example adds up to 10 tags, key-value pairs, to a cluster or snapshot resource.

aws elasticache add-tags-to-resource \
    --resource-name "arn:aws:elasticache:us-east-1:1234567890:cluster:my-mem-cluster" \
    --tags '{"20150202":15, "ElastiCache":"Service"}'

Output:

{
    "TagList": [
        {
            "Value": "20150202",
            "Key": "APIVersion"
        },
        {
            "Value": "ElastiCache",
            "Key": "Service"
        }
    ]
}
