    A tag is a key-value pair provided by Tencent Cloud to identify a resource in the cloud.
    You can use tags to classify TMP resources based on various factors such as service, usage, and owner. With tags, you can quickly sift through the resource pool and find the corresponding resources. The values of tag keys do not mean anything to Tencent Cloud semantically and will be parsed and matched strictly according to the string. Tencent Cloud will not use your set tags, which are used only for resource management.

    Below is a specific use case to show how a tag is used.

    Use Case Background

    A company owns 10 TMP instances in Tencent Cloud. Distributed in three departments (ecommerce, gaming, and entertainment), these instances are used to serve internal business lines such as marketing, game A, game B, and post-production. The OPS owners of the three departments are John, Jane, and Harry, respectively.

    Setting Tag

    To facilitate management, the company categorizes its TMP resources with tags and defines the following tag key-value pairs:

    Tag Key Tag Value
    Department Ecommerce, gaming, and entertainment
    Business Marketing, game A, game B, and post-production
    OPS owner John, Jane, and Harry

    These tags are bound to TMP instances in the following way:

    Instance ID Department Business OPS Owner
    prom-1jqwv1 Ecommerce Marketing Harry
    prom-1jqwv12 Ecommerce Marketing Harry
    prom-1jqwv13 Gaming Game A John
    prom-1jqwv13 Gaming Game B John
    prom-1jqwv14 Gaming Game B John
    prom-1jqwv15 Gaming Game B Jane
    prom-1jqwv16 Gaming Game B Jane
    prom-1jqwv17 Gaming Game B Jane
    prom-1jqwv18 Entertainment Post-production Harry
    prom-1jqwv19 Entertainment Post-production Harry
    prom-1jqwv110 Entertainment Post-production Harry

    Using Tag

    • Filter out the TMP instances in the charge of Harry

    • Filter out the TMP instances in the charge of Jane in the gaming department
