Marking AS Groups and ECSs

If you have many resources of the same type, you can use a tag to manage resources flexibly. You can identify specified resources quickly using the tags allocated to them.

Using a tag, you can assign custom data to each AS group. You can organize and manage AS groups, for example, classify AS group resources by usage, owner, or environment.

Each tag contains a key and a value. You can specify the key and value for each tag. A key can be a category associated with certain values, such as usage, owner, and environment.

For example, if you want to distinguish the test environment and production environment, you can allocate a tag with the key environment to each AS group. For the test environment, the key value is test and for the production environment, the key value is production. You are advised to use one or multiple groups of consistent tags to manage your AS group resources.

After you allocate a tag to an AS group, the system will automatically add the tag to the ECSs automatically created in the AS group. If you add a tag to an AS group or modify the tag, the new tag will be added to the ECSs automatically created in the AS group. Creating, deleting, or modifying the tag of an AS group will have no impact on the ECSs in the AS group.

Restrictions of Using Tags

You must observe the following rules when using tags:
  • Each AS group can have a maximum of 10 tags added to it.
  • Each tag contains a key and a value.
  • You can set the tag value to an empty character string.
  • If you delete an AS group, all tags of it will also be deleted.
