Last updated: 2022-05-26 11:40:29


    Tags are key-value pairs provided by Tencent Cloud for easy resource identification. You can use tags to categorize and manage your CVM resources.
    Tencent Cloud will not use your tags, they are solely used by you to manage your CVM resources.

    Usage Limits

    Note the following limits when using tags:

    • Quantity limits: each Tencent Cloud resource allows up to 50 tags.
    • Tag key limits:
    • Tag keys cannot start with qcloud, tencent, or project.
    • A tag key can contain up to 255 characters, including numbers, letters, and +=.@-.
    • Tag value limits: a tag value can contain up to 127 characters, including numbers, letters and +=.@-. It can be left empty if necessary.
