ApsaraDB for Redis:TagResources

Last Updated:May 28, 2024

Adds specified tags to one or more ApsaraDB for Redis instances.

Operation description

If you have a large number of instances, you can create multiple tags and add these tags to the instances. Then, you can filter instances by tag.

  • A tag consists of a key and a value. Each key must be unique in a region for an Alibaba Cloud account. Different keys can be mapped to the same value.
  • If the tag that you specify does not exist, this tag is automatically created and added to the specified instance.
  • If the key of the specified tag is the same as that of an existing tag, the specified tag overwrites the existing tag.
  • You can add up to 20 tags to each instance.
  • You can add tags to up to 50 instances in each request.

You can also add tags to instances in the ApsaraDB for Redis console. For more information, see Create a tag.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer.
