TagResource - Amazon Simple Notification Service
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


Add tags to the specified Amazon SNS topic. For an overview, see Amazon SNS Tags in the Amazon SNS Developer Guide.

When you use topic tags, keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Adding more than 50 tags to a topic isn't recommended.

  • Tags don't have any semantic meaning. Amazon SNS interprets tags as character strings.

  • Tags are case-sensitive.

  • A new tag with a key identical to that of an existing tag overwrites the existing tag.

  • Tagging actions are limited to 10 TPS per Amazon Web Services account, per Amazon Web Services Region. If your application requires a higher throughput, file a technical support request.
