Overview

This topic explains how to use tags with LaunchDarkly resources. Tags are customizable labels that help you categorize flags, segments, metrics, projects, environments, and other resources.

Tags are useful in the following ways:

  • Categorizing: You can add the same tag to different kinds of resources. This lets you easily understand which resources are associated with which projects or teams.
  • Filtering: You can filter the flags list, environments list, and projects list by tag.
  • Permissions: You can allow or deny account members access to resources with specific tags. To learn how to use tags with custom role policies, read Using tags.

Tag names can include only letters, numbers, periods ., underscores _, and dashes -. You can add tags to a resource when you create the resource, or you can add tags to existing resources later. The following sections explain how to add tags to existing resources.
