Deleting tags in Amazon Lightsail

Last updated: November 28, 2018

You can delete tags from an Amazon Lightsail resource. Deleting a tag from one resource does not delete the same tag from all other resources. To completely delete a tag from all resources, you must remove that tag from each resource. This guide provides the steps to delete tags from a resource.

Note

For more information about tags, what resources can be tagged, and the tag restrictions, see Tags in Amazon Lightsail.

    To delete tags from a resource

  1. Sign in to the Lightsail console.

  2. On the Lightsail home page, choose the tab for the resource type that you want to delete tags from. For example, to delete tags from a DNS zone, choose the Networking tab. Or choose the Instances tab to delete tags from an instance.

    Note

    Instances, databases, disks, DNS zones, and load balancers can be tagged using the Lightsail console. However, more Lightsail resources can be tagged using the Lightsail API operations, or the Command Line Interface ( CLI) or SDKs. For a full list of Lightsail resources that support tagging, see Tags in Amazon Lightsail.

  3. Choose the resource that you want to delete tags from.

  4. On the management page for the resource you selected, choose the Tags tab.

  5. Do one of the following, depending on the type of tag that you want to delete from the resource:

    1. Choose Edit key-only tags, then choose the delete icon (X) for the tag that you want to delete from the resource. Choose Save when you’re done deleting tags to remove them from the resource, or choose Cancel to not remove them.
