This topic describes how to delete or unbind a tag in the ECS console. This allows you to unbind a tag from a resource when it is no longer required. If you unbind a tag from a resource and the tag is not bound to any other resources, this tag is automatically deleted.


The resource is bound to a tag.

Background information

Before you unbind a tag, note the following points:
  • You can unbind up to 20 tags at a time.
  • If you unbind a tag from all its resources, such as ECS instances, snapshots, and security groups, it indicates that this tag is deleted.


  1. Log on to the ECS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Tags.
  3. On the Tags tab, select and click a tag key.
  4. On the Resources tab, click a resource type. For example, you can click ECS to go to the list of ECS resources.
  5. Select one or more resources, move the pointer over Batch Operation, and click Unbind Tags.
  6. On the Resources tab, click Refresh to check whether the tags are unbound.
