Custom Tags for temp worker instances

Post by mmasching »

Hi,

might be a new feature. To ensure proper chargeback we use customtags in AWS. Would it be possible to provide custom tags to be set for the temp worker instances?

regards
Marcus

Not currently. Request noted

Is this for internal chargeback? Could you potentially report of the names?

Hi Marcus, could you give some more information on these custom tags and how many you add in general (if sensitive just DM or e-mail me). Also, what exactly do you want to charge on worker tasks? Specific services or all?

Hi Niels,
in general we are adding a "accounting" - Tag matching the corresponding application. It is used to charge the aws-fees to the application team/responsible.
In this case only one would be necessary but I really think one or multiple is not the challenge. In my case it would be the same value each time, so to have it editable in the "Workers" configuration would be sufficient.

best regards
Marcus

Before you use tags to control access to your AWS resources, you must understand how AWS grants access. AWS is composed of collections of resources. An Amazon EC2 instance is a resource. An Amazon S3 bucket is a resource. You can use the AWS API, the AWS CLI, or the AWS Management Console to perform an operation, such as creating a bucket in Amazon S3.

@cidmchd they are not using tags for access, they are using it for billing. Meaning when workers are deployed for certain instances they want to use tags on the workers for that policy so that all the usage for those resources will be billed appropriately.
