You can now add tags to your Amazon DynamoDB tables for improved usage categorization and more granular cost reporting. Tags are simple, user-customizable key and value pairs that are supported by many AWS services. For example, you can tag DynamoDB tables for your different development environments — development, staging, and production — to see your spend for each. 

DynamoDB tables can be tagged using the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), AWS SDK, and DynamoDB console. Local Secondary Indexes (LSIs) and Global Secondary Indexes (GSIs) related to tagged tables are automatically labeled with the same tags. Tagging for DynamoDB is available in all AWS regions.
