Creating, Assigning, and Unassigning Tags

You can create and assign tags to instances while creating the instances or later. When you no longer need certain tags for an instance, you can unassign them.

To assign tags to an instance or to unassign tags:

  1. Navigate to the Overview page for the instance for which you want to assign or unassign tags.
  2. This step depends on whether any tags are already assigned to the instance:
    If at least one tag is assigned to the instance, the Overview page shows a Tags field.
    1. Hover over any of the tags in the Tags field, until a More link is displayed.

    2. Click the More link.

    If you don’t see the Tags field, then no tags are currently assigned to the instance.
    1. Click Manage this service Menu icon in the instance name bar at the top.

    2. Select Add Tags.

    The Manage Tags dialog box is displayed.
  3. Assign or unassign tags, as required:
    • In the Assign section, from the Tags field, select the tags that you want to assign to the instance.
    • If the tags that you want to assign don't exist, select Create and Assign in the Tags field, and then enter the required tags in the Enter New Tags field.
    • To unassign a tag, in the Unassign section, look for the tag that you want to unassign, and click the X button next to the tag.
    • To exit without changing any tag assignments for the instance, click Cancel.
  4. After assigning and unassigning tags, click OK for the tag assignments to take effect.
