doctl compute tag

Go to Navigation


The sub-commands of doctl compute tag manage the tags on your account.

Tags are labels that you can apply to resources to better organize them and more efficiently take actions on them. For example, if you have a group of Droplets that you want to place behind the same set of cloud firewall rules, you can tag those Droplets with a common tag and then apply the firewall rules to all Droplets with that tag.

You can tag Droplets, images, volumes, volume snapshots, and database clusters.

Tags have two attributes: a user defined name attribute and an embedded resources attribute with information about resources that have been tagged.
