Adding tags to resources

Each tag key on a resource can have only one tag value. If you create a tag that has the same key as an existing tag, the value of the existing tag is overwritten.

For example, the city:shanghai tag is added to a resource. If you add the city:newyork tag to the resource, the city:shanghai tag is automatically removed from the resource.
