Starting today, the tags you assign to your Amazon WorkSpaces will automatically be applied to the Amazon WorkSpaces Application Manager (WAM) service charges, and any applications deployed to those WorkSpaces using WAM. Tags let you categorize your WorkSpaces and WAM applications so you can easily identify their purpose and track costs accordingly. For example, you could use tags to identify WorkSpaces and WAM applications used by a particular department, project, application, vendor, or use case. With this new capability, you can track WorkSpaces, WAM, and application usage, all by simply assigning tags to your WorkSpaces.  

To assign or remove tags for your WorkSpaces, you can use the Amazon WorkSpaces Management Console, the AWS Command Line Interface, or the Amazon WorkSpaces API. Tags have a key and a corresponding value, and you can assign up to 50 tags per WorkSpace. Tags assigned to WorkSpaces are also assigned to all WAM applications and WAM service charges associated with those WorkSpaces. To obtain usage and cost details for particular tags, you can sign up to get your AWS account bill with tag key values included.

All new WorkSpaces tags will immediately apply to WAM applications and WAM service charges. All existing WorkSpaces tags will be applied starting with your next monthly billing cycle. This feature is available in all AWS Regions where Amazon WAM is available. For more information about tagging your WorkSpaces, click here.

Update 9/1/2022: Amazon WorkSpaces Application Manager (Amazon WAM) is reaching end of life and will no longer be available starting on September 1, 2023. Visit the WAM End of Life FAQs for more information.
