Mastering AWS Tag Policies: Simplify Resource Tagging Compliance


Utilizing tag policies enables you to ensure uniform tags, including the desired case treatment for both tag keys and tag values. It aids in standardizing tags across resources within your organization’s accounts. Within a tag policy, you define tagging rules that are applied to resources when they are tagged. As an illustration, consider a scenario where a tag policy dictates that when the “Location” tag is added to a resource, it must adhere to the case treatment and tag values defined by the tag policy. Furthermore, this tag policy can enforce compliance with tagging operations on specific resource types, effectively preventing noncompliant tagging requests from being executed. It’s important to note that untagged resources or tags not specified in the tag policy are not assessed for compliance with the policy. This blog explains the step-by-step procedure for utilizing AWS Tag policies.
