You can now add tags, simple labels consisting of a user-defined key and an optional value, to your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) gateway endpoints, interface endpoints (AWS PrivateLink), and endpoint services (AWS PrivateLink) directly while creating the resource. By tagging resources at the time of creation, you can eliminate the need to run custom tagging scripts after resource creation.

To get started, simply add tags at the time of creating a VPC gateway endpoint, interface endpoint or an endpoint service. These tags can then be used to 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.

This functionality is available at no additional cost through the AWS console, command-line interfaces (CLIs), and software-development kits (SDKs) in all AWS Regions.
