You can now configure your Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility database cluster to automatically copy tags on the cluster to any automated or manual database cluster snapshots that are created from the cluster. This allows you to easily set metadata on your snapshots to match the parent cluster, including access policies.

You may enable or disable this functionality while creating a new cluster, or by modifying an existing database cluster. This is done by setting the option on the Configure advanced settings page in the Amazon RDS Management Console, or setting the CopyTagsToSnapshot flag in the CLI or SDK.

Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. For more information, please visit the Amazon Aurora product page.
