EC2 Tag Resources

Amazon Web Services (AWS)’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a commercial web service that allows users to rent virtual computers. Using AWS EC2’s cloud infrastructure, you can build powerful servers in the cloud. This service completely eliminates the need to set up and invest in hardware, enabling you to deploy your apps quickly. With AWS EC2, you can set up servers, configure networking and security, and manage storage. 

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) provides block level storage volumes that you can use with your EC2 instances. You can attach an EBS volume to any running EC2 instance and can use it as primary storage for databases, file systems, or any app that requires frequent updates and quick access to the data. 

About this activity
If you have multiple EC2 resources, such as instances, images, and so on, you can manage and organize them easily by tagging them. Using this activity, you can create tags for your EC2 resources. To do this, you first need to configure the activity, and select the required AWS connection. Select the region in which the resource resides. 

Next, enter the ID of the resource that you wish to tag. Then click on ‘+ Tags’ and enter relevant tags for the specified resources. Tags should be entered in ‘Key-Value’ pair. Remember that keys must be unique per resource. It is also important to note that the tags will be created for all the resources you add. So, for instance, if you add two resource Ids, and enter four tags, these four tags would be attached to the two specified resources. 

You can perform a dry run to check if you have the required permissions to create tags. Once you have entered all the required details, click on ‘Done’ and run the flow. This will create tags for the specified EC2 resources.
