With this Amplify CLI release, you can now assign tags to Amplify-generated AWS resources (such as AppSync, S3 etc.). Tags are key-value pairs that allow you to categorize your resources in different ways, such as by cost center or owner, which simplifies cost allocation in your organization. 

You can easily filter & manage tagged resources with AWS Resource Groups or set permission constraints with IAM based on specific tags.  

Refer to a full guide for how to start adding tags to Amplify-generated AWS resources in our blog post.

To get started, install the Amplify CLI, run amplify init and modify the “amplify/backend/tags.json” file.
