Tags give information about an instance deployed through ElasticBox. They let you report on provider resources consumed by ElasticBox users. They inform what box, provider, user, workspace, and such from ElasticBox were involved in deploying an instance.
As an ElasticBox administrator, you get to apply 10 tags for your organization. From the admin console, once you can add preset or custom tags, they’re applied to the provider when a user launches an instance to any public or private cloud such as AWS, vSphere, Google Cloud, Azure, OpenStack, and CloudStack. They are applied on instances launched in Linux, Windows, CloudFormation, and RDS services.
You can use tags to report on usage metrics from the provider’s interface. Tags help you understand how ElasticBox resources are spread across your organization. Use them to identify usage patterns and optimize resources for your teams and users.
ElasticBox supports tagging in the Enterprise Edition for AWS, Google Cloud, OpenStack, CloudStack, and vSphere.
In the admin console, you can add tags under Providers > Tags.
