After you bind tags to resources, you can use Operation Orchestration Service (OOS) to implement automated operations and maintenance (O&M) by tag.

Scenarios

Enterprises have an increasing number of cloud resources. O&M is important to these resources. However, manual O&M cannot meet the requirements of enterprises. You can use OOS to implement automated O&M. OOS provides the best practices of operations as code. This allows you to create templates from manuals such as O&M guides, user guides and operation guides. Before you use OOS to implement automated O&M, you must use tags to categorize your resources from different dimensions. This way, OOS can identify the resources by tag during O&M. Therefore, the combination of the Tag service and OOS provides an optimal O&M solution for enterprises.

Benefits

  • You can perform automated O&M on multiple objects at a time. For example, you can start, stop, or restart multiple Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances at a time.
  • You can manage multiple tags at a time. For example, you can bind or modify multiple tags at a time.
  • You can use tags as a basis to implement operation orchestration from different dimensions. If you do not want to implement automated O&M for a resource, you do not need to modify the script for the orchestration task. You only need to modify the tags bound to the resource in the Resource Management console.

Procedure

  1. Use tags of different business dimensions to identify resources for centralized management.
  2. Create a template in OOS and execute the template to implement automated O&M.
