Azure resources that support tags do not have Tags

Description

Many different types of Azure resources support tags. Tags allow you to add metadata to a resource to help identify ownership, perform cost / billing analysis, and to enrich a resource with other valuable information, such as descriptions and environment names. While there are many ways that tags can be used, we recommend you follow a tagging practice.

Terraform

The example below shows how to tag a security group in Terraform. The syntax is generally the same for any taggable resource type.

resource "azurerm_resource_group" "example" {
  name     = "example-resources"
  location = "West Europe"
}

resource "azurerm_managed_disk" "example" {
  name                 = "acctestmd"
  location             = "West US 2"
  resource_group_name  = azurerm_resource_group.example.name
  storage_account_type = "Standard_LRS"
  create_option        = "Empty"
  disk_size_gb         = "1"

+  tags = {
+    environment = "staging"
  }
}
