add-tags-to-resource

Description

Adds or overwrites one or more tags for the specified resource. Tags are metadata that you can assign to your automations, documents, managed nodes, maintenance windows, Parameter Store parameters, and patch baselines. Tags enable you to categorize your resources in different ways, for example, by purpose, owner, or environment. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define. For example, you could define a set of tags for your account’s managed nodes that helps you track each node’s owner and stack level. For example:

  • Key=Owner,Value=DbAdmin

  • Key=Owner,Value=SysAdmin

  • Key=Owner,Value=Dev

  • Key=Stack,Value=Production

  • Key=Stack,Value=Pre-Production

  • Key=Stack,Value=Test

Most resources can have a maximum of 50 tags. Automations can have a maximum of 5 tags.

We recommend that you devise a set of tag keys that meets your needs for each resource type. Using a consistent set of tag keys makes it easier for you to manage your resources. You can search and filter the resources based on the tags you add. Tags don’t have any semantic meaning to and are interpreted strictly as a string of characters.

For more information about using tags with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, see Tagging your Amazon EC2 resources in the Amazon EC2 User Guide .

Synopsis

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

Options

--resource-type (string)

Specifies the type of resource you are tagging.

Note

The ManagedInstance type for this API operation is for on-premises managed nodes. You must specify the name of the managed node in the following format: mi-*ID_number* `` . For example, ``mi-1a2b3c4d5e6f .

Possible values:

  • Document

  • ManagedInstance

  • MaintenanceWindow

  • Parameter

  • PatchBaseline

  • OpsItem

  • OpsMetadata

  • Automation

--resource-id (string)

The resource ID you want to tag.

Use the ID of the resource. Here are some examples:

MaintenanceWindow : mw-012345abcde

PatchBaseline : pb-012345abcde

Automation : example-c160-4567-8519-012345abcde

OpsMetadata object: ResourceID for tagging is created from the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the object. Specifically, ResourceID is created from the strings that come after the word opsmetadata in the ARN. For example, an OpsMetadata object with an ARN of arn:aws:ssm:us-east-2:1234567890:opsmetadata/aws/ssm/MyGroup/appmanager has a ResourceID of either aws/ssm/MyGroup/appmanager or /aws/ssm/MyGroup/appmanager .

For the Document and Parameter values, use the name of the resource.

ManagedInstance : mi-012345abcde

Note

The ManagedInstance type for this API operation is only for on-premises managed nodes. You must specify the name of the managed node in the following format: mi-*ID_number* `` . For example, ``mi-1a2b3c4d5e6f .

--tags (list)

One or more tags. The value parameter is required.

Warning

Don’t enter personally identifiable information in this field.

(structure)

Metadata that you assign to your Amazon Web Services resources. Tags enable you to categorize your resources in different ways, for example, by purpose, owner, or environment. In Amazon Web Services Systems Manager, you can apply tags to Systems Manager documents (SSM documents), managed nodes, maintenance windows, parameters, patch baselines, OpsItems, and OpsMetadata.

Key -> (string)

The name of the tag.

Value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

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

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Example 1: To add tags to a maintenance window

The following add-tags-to-resource example adds a tag to the specified maintenance window.

aws ssm add-tags-to-resource \
    --resource-type "MaintenanceWindow" \
    --resource-id "mw-03eb9db428EXAMPLE" \
    --tags "Key=Stack,Value=Production"

This command produces no output.

Example 2: To add tags to a parameter

The following add-tags-to-resource example adds two tags to to the specified parameter.

aws ssm add-tags-to-resource \
    --resource-type "Parameter" \
    --resource-id "My-Parameter" \
    --tags '[{"Key":"Region","Value":"East"},{"Key":"Environment", "Value":"Production"}]'

This command produces no output.

Example 3: To add tags to an SSM document

The following add-tags-to-resource example adds a tag to to the specified document.

aws ssm add-tags-to-resource \
    --resource-type "Document" \
    --resource-id "My-Document" \
    --tags "Key=Quarter,Value=Q322"

This command produces no output.
