When you want to check the resources, but it's a hassle to check them on the console if they are located in multiple regions…
In this article, I would like to introduce the "Tag Editor", which allows you to check resources in different regions of AWS at once to solve such problems.
What’s Tag Editor？
Tag Editor is one of the features of the AWS resource group that allows you to tag multiple resources.
Check the AWS documentation for more information.
Originally, this function was designed to tag multiple resources for easier management, but since the resource search function is so useful, and let me introduce how to use the tag editor to check resources in different regions!
How to check resources at once
Now I’m going to explain how to use it.
It is very easy, you can give it a try.
First, log in to your AWS management account.
Search “Tag Editor” in the search bar (top left), and then select tag editor.
Once you click the Tag Editor, you see a screen like this.
There are three sections to fill in, Region, Resource Type, and Tag.
You can select multiple regions and resource types as you like, or choose all. Tags allow you to search for resources with any specified ‘Name’ tag. If no filers are applied, all resources will be displayed.
The result looks like this. EC2 instances in all regions are properly displayed.
As you can see, it is possible to search for any region, resource, and tag, and you can assign any tag to any resource that appears in the search results.
The benefits of the Tag Editor are
It allows you to see all the resources in multiple regions at once
Arbitrary tags can be attached to the resources displayed in the search results
It’s very useful, isn't it? You should try it yourself!
