Amazon S3 - Manage Cost Allocation Tagging (GET Bucket tagging, PUT Bucket tagging, DELETE Bucket tagging)

Amazon S3 supports Cost Allocation Reports. It's a new billing feature that will help you organize and track your AWS costs using tagging. Tags represent your business dimensions and are used in your cost allocation report. You can apply Tagging on the S3 Bucket.

You can tag your Amazon S3 buckets by using Amazon S3 REST APIs (GET Bucket tagging, PUT Bucket tagging, DELETE Bucket tagging) in your own software program or by using Bucket Explorer, if you do not want to write a software program.

PUT Bucket Tagging Amazon S3 REST API for Cost Allocation

You can send PUT request from your program to add a set of tags to an existing Bucket. Here is the syntax:

Date: date
Authorization: signatureValue
<Tagging>
<TagSet>
<Tag>
<Key> Tag Name </Key>
<Value> Tag Value </Value>
</Tag>
</TagSet>
