You can 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 Data Hub 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
Owner Your email.
cb-user-name Your Data Hub admin email.
cb-version Data Hub version
cb-resource-type Can be one of the following:
NETWORK("network_resource", "network"),
TEMPLATE("template_resource", "template"),
INSTANCE("instance_resource", "instance"),
SECURITY("securitygroup_resource", "securitygroup"),
IP("ipaddress_resource", "ipaddress"),
DISK("disk_resource", "disk"),
STORAGE("storage_resource", "storage"),
DATABASE("database_resource", "database");
cb-creation-timestamp A stamp indicating cluster creation date and time.
You can optionally add additional tags. To add custom tags:
  1. In the create cluster wizard, navigate to the General Configuration page.
  2. Specify your tags in the Tags section by providing a key and value for each tag.

To learn more about tags and their restrictions, refer to AWS documentation.
