Enabling AWS Tags Assigning

In the Tags section of the Targets step of the wizard, choose whether you want to assign AWS tags to snapshots and snapshots replicas. To assign AWS tags, click Edit Tag Settings.

In the Tag configuration window, specify tag settings:

  1. To assign already existing AWS tags from the processed RDS resources, select the Copy tags from source RDS instances check box.

If you choose to copy tags from source instances, Veeam Backup for AWS will first create a cloud-native snapshot or snapshot replica of the DB instance or Aurora DB cluster and assign to the created snapshot AWS tags with Veeam metadata, then Veeam Backup for AWS will copy tags from the processed instance and finally assign the copied AWS tags to the snapshot.

  1. To assign your own custom AWS tags, set the Add custom tags to created snapshots toggle to On and specify the AWS tags explicitly. To do that, use the Key and Value fields to specify a key and a value for the new custom AWS tag, and then click Add. Note that you cannot add more than 5 custom AWS tags.

If you choose to add custom tags to created snapshots, Veeam Backup for AWS will assign the specified tags right after it creates a cloud-native snapshot or snapshot replica.

  1. To save changes made to the backup policy settings, click Apply.
