Creating a Cluster on AWS
Also available as:


The Tags section allows you to define tags that will be applied to your cluster-related resources, such as VMs, on your cloud provider account.

The tags added during cluster creation are displayed in your cloud account on the resources that Cloudbreak provisioned for your clusters. You can use tags to categorize your cloud resources by purpose, owner, and so on. Tags come in especially handy when you are using a corporate AWS account and you want to quickly identify which resources belong to your cluster(s). In fact, your corporate cloud account admin may require you to tag all the resources that you create, in particular resources, such as VMs, which incur charges.

By default, the following tags are created:

Tag Description
cb-version Cloudbreak version
Owner Your Cloudbreak admin email.
cb-account-name Your automatically generated Cloudbreak account name stored in the identity server.
cb-user-name Your Cloudbreak admin email.

You can optionally add additional tags. In the Cloudbreak UI, this option is available in the create cluster wizard, in the advanced General Configuration page > Tags section.

For clusters running on AWS it is also possible to set tags in the profile file.

It is not possible to add tags via Cloudbreak after your cluster has been created. In this case, you can only add the tags manually via your cloud provider's interface.

To learn more about tags and their restrictions, refer to your cloud provider documentation.
