This topic describes how to delete the tags that are no longer in use from a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). The operation for deleting tags from a route table or a VSwitch is similar to the procedure described in this topic.

Background information

Note the following before deleting tags:
  • You can delete up to 20 tags at a time.
  • If you add a tag to multiple instances, deleting the tag from one instance does not affect other instances.


  1. Log on to the VPC console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region of the VPC.
  3. On the VPCs page, find the target VPC, and then move the pointer over the Tag icon icon in the Tags column. Then click Edit in the bubble that appears.
  4. In the Configure Tags dialog box, select or enter the tag key-value pair, and then click the Delete icon icon that matches the entry.
    In this dialog box, you can also add tags to the instance.
  5. Click OK.
