CLI tool for analyzing AWS tagging schemas and applying them

Project description




Tagger Demo


Report Demo


The taggercli can be installed via pip.
Running pip install PLACEHOLDER PYPI NAME will install the CLI


The main commands are

  • tagger report create
  • tagger tag all

Report creation

The report create command first scans your AWS account (specified in your configuration, see Configuration for more information) and compares the tags of found resources with tags specified in your configuration file. A html report is generated showing the results from the comparison.
If no region is specified via --region the default from the configuration file is used.

Tag all

The tag all command first scans a given AWS region and your global resources. It displays a list of all the found resources and applies tags found in the configuration file.
If no region is specified via --region the default from the configuration file is used.

Supported resources

Please see the taggercore README for a list of supported resources.



tagger config create creates a config file and writes the result to ~/.tagger/config.ini
The profile provided should be present in your AWS configuration file. Per default boto looks at ~/.aws/config for the profile. Please make sure the specified profile has all the required permissions.

The config.ini is also used to specify the given tag schema.
The config file is case-sensitive!
