Tag multiple Azure Resources from Azure Portal

By | June 4, 2018

You can Tag multiple Azure resources together from Azure Portal. Azure Tags allows us to identify a specific set of Azure resources for the specific category, or logically organize them for better management. Once resources are tagged, you can filter, search or event organized based on the tags. Azure tags are just a name and value pairs. For an instance, consider you are assigned a tag for Dev, Staging and Production environment’s resources.

Tag an Azure Resource

To Tag an Azure Resource, you can just navigate to the resource dashboard.  You will find there an option called Tags in the left sidebar.  Click on Tags, then provide the Name and Value corresponding the resource and click on Save.

While you can tag one by one resource for the specific tag category, you can make it much faster by tagging multiple resources.

From the Azure Portal, navigate to All Resources. From there select all the resource checkboxes for which you want to assign a common tag.

Once resources are tagged with the name, you can get all the resources for that specific tag name. Tag name also displayed on the billing information screen, there you can filter what specific group of resources consuming how much cost. This helps for overall cost management and monitoring of Azure resources from a different aspect.
