You can now add tags to your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) gateway endpoints, interface endpoints (AWS PrivateLink), and endpoint services (AWS PrivateLink). A tag is a simple label consisting of a customer-defined key and an optional value that can be used search, filter, and organize your VPC endpoints and endpoint services. You can also use tags to clearly organize the charges for the resources you utilize, as presented at Using Cost Allocation Tags in the AWS Billing and Cost Management user guide.

AWS PrivateLink allows you to privately access services hosted on AWS in a highly available and scalable manner, without using public IPs and without requiring the traffic to traverse the internet. PrivateLink removes the need for whitelisting public IPs, or managing the internet connectivity using an internet gateway, network address translation (NAT) devices, or firewall proxies to connect to services hosted on AWS. Services available on PrivateLink also support private connectivity over AWS Direct Connect and AWS VPN, so that applications in your own data centers can connect to AWS services via the Amazon private network using service endpoints.

Tagging support for endpoints and endpoint services is available through the AWS console, command-line interfaces (CLIs), and software-development kits (SDKs). Tagging support is available in the following AWS Regions: US West (N. California), US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka-Local), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), EU (Paris), EU (Stockholm), AWS GovCloud (US-East), and AWS GovCloud (US-West).
