You can now add tags, simple labels consisting of a user-defined key and an optional value, to your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) gateway endpoints, interface endpoints (Amazon PrivateLink), and endpoint services (Amazon PrivateLink) directly at runtime. By tagging resources at the time of creation, you can eliminate the need to run custom tagging scripts after resource creation. 

To get started, simply add tags at the time of creating a VPC gateway endpoint, interface endpoint or an endpoint service. These tags can then be used to search, filter, and organize your VPC endpoints and endpoint services. You can also use tags to clearly organize the charges for the resources you utilize, as presented at Using Cost Allocation Tags in the Amazon Web Services Billing and Cost Management user guide. 

This functionality is available at no additional cost through the Amazon Web Services console, command-line interfaces (CLIs), and software-development kits (SDKs) in all Amazon Web Services Regions, including Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
