QuickSight / Client / tag_resource



Assigns one or more tags (key-value pairs) to the specified Amazon QuickSight resource.

Tags can help you organize and categorize your resources. You can also use them to scope user permissions, by granting a user permission to access or change only resources with certain tag values. You can use the TagResource operation with a resource that already has tags. If you specify a new tag key for the resource, this tag is appended to the list of tags associated with the resource. If you specify a tag key that is already associated with the resource, the new tag value that you specify replaces the previous value for that tag.

You can associate as many as 50 tags with a resource. Amazon QuickSight supports tagging on data set, data source, dashboard, template, and topic.

Tagging for Amazon QuickSight works in a similar way to tagging for other Amazon Web Services services, except for the following:

  • You can’t use tags to track costs for Amazon QuickSight. This isn’t possible because you can’t tag the resources that Amazon QuickSight costs are based on, for example Amazon QuickSight storage capacity (SPICE), number of users, type of users, and usage metrics.

  • Amazon QuickSight doesn’t currently support the tag editor for Resource Groups.
