Tags can be used to identify resources with the same characteristics (such as reserved instances that belong to the same organization or that serve the same purpose) for easy search and management. This topic describes how to edit the tags of an existing reserved instance.

Background information

For information about how to use tags, the resources that support tags, and the limits on tags, see Overview and the "Tag limits" section of the Limits topic.


  1. Log on to the ECS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Instances & Images > Reserved Instances.
  3. In the top navigation bar, select a region.
  4. Find the reserved instance whose tags you want to edit, move the pointer over the edit-tag icon in the Tag column, and then click Edit Tags.
  5. On the Tag Editor tab, find the reserved instance and click Edit Tags.
  6. On the Manage Tags page, click Add Tag.
  7. Select an existing tag or create a tag. Then, click Submit.
  8. In the Confirmation message, click OK.

What to do next

After tags are added to your reserved instances, you can filter the reserved instances by tag to perform different operations. For example, you can renew reserved instances that have a set of tags and change the regions or zones of reserved instances that have a different set of tags.
