Resource tags allow you to add metadata and apply access policies to your Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) resources. Starting today, you can allow resource tags set on your EBS volumes to be automatically copied to any EBS snapshots that are created using Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager (DLM). This allows you to easily set snapshot metadata, such as access policies, to match the parent volume. You may enable this functionality on new or existing lifecycle policies. You may also choose to disable it at a future date.
