If you have created a large number of clusters, you can classify these clusters by binding tags to them. Each tag consists of a key and value. You can use a combination of keys and values to classify your clusters into subcategories.


  • You can bind no more than 20 tags to each cluster. Tag keys must be unique. Two or more tags with the same key will overwrite each other.
  • You can bind tags to up to 50 clusters at a time.
  • Clusters deployed in different regions do not share the same tag namespace.
  • After you unbind a tag, if this tag is not bound to any other clusters, the tag is deleted.


  1. Log on to the ApsaraDB for HBase console.
  2. In the upper-left corner of the page, select the region where your ApsaraDB for HBase clusters are deployed.
  3. Select a mode to create tags.
    • Create a tag: After you select a cluster, select More > Edit Tag in the Actions column.
    • Create one or more tags: Select the clusters that you want to create tags for, and click Edit Tag, as shown in the following figure.
  4. Click Create, enter a Key and Value, and click OK, as shown in the following figure.
    Note If you have already created some tags, you can select Existing Tags.
  5. Click OK to bind the tags to the clusters.
