See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--resource-arn <value>
[--tags <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resource-arn (string) The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource.

--tags (map) The key-value pair for the resource tag.key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

{"string": "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.


To apply tags to a resource

The following tag-resource example applies two tags, ResourceType and ResourceSubType, to the specified Greengrass resource. This operation can both add new tags and values or update the value for existing tags. Use the untag-resource command to remove a tag.

aws greengrass tag-resource \
    --resource-arn "arn:aws:greengrass:us-west-2:123456789012:/greengrass/definition/resources/ad8c101d-8109-4b0e-b97d-9cc5802ab658" \
    --tags "ResourceType=Device,ResourceSubType=USB"

This command produces no output.
