A tag is a combination of a key and a value that must be unique for each resource. You can use tags to categorize your resources depending on their operating system, environment, applications, version, and so on.
No tags are added by default to your resources. When adding a tag, you can:
- Specify both a key and a value
- Specify a key only, without a value
If you specify an already-existing key for the same resource, no new, duplicate tag is created. Instead, the value of the existing tag is updated.
For more information, see Adding or Removing Tags.
You can add tags to the following resources:
- OUTSCALE Machine Images (OMIs)
- External IP addresses (EIPs)
- Security groups
- Route tables
- Network interfaces (both primary and flexible ones)
- Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs)
- VPC peering connections
- VPC endpoints
- NAT gateways
- Internet gateways
- Customer gateways
- Virtual private gateways
- VPN connections
- DHCP options
- Load balancers. For more information about tags for load balancers, see Tagging Your Load Balancer.
- Export tasks
The maximum number of tags per resource is defined at the creation of your account. To modify this limit, contact our Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
