Starting today, you can tag Amazon WorkSpaces registered directories, images, custom bundles, and IP Access Control Groups, in addition to each user's WorkSpace. These tags make it easy to organize your WorkSpaces deployments, create cost allocation reports for billing, and enable granular access control for your WorkSpaces resources.

You can also use tags to create IAM policies that limit access to Amazon WorkSpaces resources, allowing you to control access at the resource level without having to grant access to all resources in your Amazon WorkSpaces account. For example, you can limit an admin in your account to only perform operations on WorkSpaces associated with specified tags for a particular department, project, application, vendor, or use case.

You can assign tags using the Amazon WorkSpaces console or APIs in all AWS Regions where Amazon WorkSpaces is available. To learn more about utilizing tags to manage Amazon WorkSpaces resources, please refer to our documentation and AWS Tagging Strategies.
