Automation, a feature of Systems Manager, now supports adding tags to your Automation executions, making it easy to sort and filter executions in different ways, such as by resource, purpose, owner, or environment. For example, you can run an Automation that is a remediation for your RDS instance by adding multiple tags ('Remediation' and 'RDS'). This enables you to query for workflow-based tags and resource-based tags. Similarly, you can have different tags for environments, such as prod or test. For example, for patching your prod fleet, you can add 'Patch' and 'Prod' tags. Similarly, for patching your test fleet, you can add 'Patch' and 'Test' tags. 

Automation is a feature in Systems Manager. Systems Manager enables visibility and control of your cloud and on-premises infrastructure. It simplifies resource and application management, shortens the time to detect and resolve operational problems, and makes it easier to operate and manage your infrastructure securely at scale.  

Automation is available in all commercial Regions, China Regions, and AWS GovCloud (US). For more information about Automation, visit the AWS Systems Manager Product page and Documentation.
