Adding tags to an existing AWS Elemental MediaConvert resource

The following procedure shows you how to add tags to existing job templates, output presets, or queues using the AWS Elemental MediaConvert console. You can't use the console to add tags to existing jobs.

For information about adding tags using the API, see the POST method in the Tags endpoint section of the MediaConvert API Reference.


Tags on your MediaConvert resources don't appear in the JSON response to a GET request on the resource. Instead, send a GET request to the Tags endpoint. If you send your request directly to the API, rather than using an SDK, you must URL encode the resource ARN.
