Last month, we announced support for tagging Amazon DynamoDB tables when you create them in all standard AWS Regions. Today, we extend tagging support to the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. Tags are labels you can attach to AWS resources to make them easier to manage, search, and filter.

You can use tags to categorize tables based on their purpose, owner, environment, and other criteria. For example, you can use tags to organize your resources in the AWS Management Console or to break down your AWS costs by tags using the AWS Cost and Usage report.

You can tag DynamoDB tables by using the DynamoDB console, the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), or the CreateTable API. To learn more about DynamoDB tagging and its benefits, see Tagging for DynamoDB.
