doctl compute tag

Go to Navigation


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

A tag is a label that can be applied to a resource (currently Droplets, images, volumes, volume snapshots, and database clusters) in order to better organize or facilitate the lookups and actions on it.

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