You can remove tags that you no longer need from cloud instances. This topic describes how to remove tags from multiple virtual private clouds (VPCs) at a time. You can remove tags from route tables and vSwitches in a similar way.

Background information

Before you remove tags, take note of the following limits:
  • You can remove at most 20 tags at a time.
  • If a tag is added to multiple instances and you remove the tag from one instance, the other instances are not affected.


  1. Log on to the VPC console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region of the VPC.
  3. On the VPCs page, select the VPC from which you want to remove tags, and choose Configure Tags > Delete Tags.
  4. In the Delete Tags for Multiple Resources dialog box, specify tag keys and tag values and click The Delete icon on the right side.
  5. Click OK.
