AWS Cost Allocation Tags now offers APIs that you can use to activate and deactivate your Cost Allocation Tags. After you activate a Cost Allocation Tag, it will appear in your cost management products, such as AWS Cost Explorer and AWS Cost and Usage Report. You can use Cost Allocation Tags to filter, categorize, and track your AWS cost and usage information. Previously, you had to activate and deactivate Cost Allocation Tag on the Cost Allocation Tag page in the AWS Billing Console. With this launch, you can use the ListCostAllocationTags API to list all Tags and use the UpdateCostAllocationTagsStatus API to activate and deactivate Cost Allocation Tags.

The new API is available in all regions. There is no additional cost for using this API. For more information, see API documentation.
