You can use Amazon Neptune resources tags to add metadata and apply access policies to your Amazon Neptune resources. Now, you can allow resource tags set on your Neptune clusters to be automatically copied to any automated or manual database snapshots that are created from your clusters. Tags can be used with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies to manage access to Neptune resources and control what actions can be applied to those resources.

Using Copy Tags to Snapshot, you can easily set metadata on your snapshots to match the parent cluster. To enable this feature, check the box Copy tags to snapshots when creating a new database cluster or modifying an existing database cluster. You can also choose to disable it at a future date. Once enabled, tags can be copied to all future copies of a snapshot, including cross-region snapshots. You can also enable or disable this feature via the AWS CLI.
