VM::EC2::Tag(3) Object describing a tagged Amazon EC2 resource


use VM::EC2;
$ec2 = VM::EC2->new(...);
@tags = $ec2->describe_tags(-filter=> {'resource-type'=>'volume'});
for my $t (@tags) {
$id = $t->resourceId;
$type = $t->resourceType;
$key = $t->key;
$value = $t->value;


This object is used to describe an Amazon EC2 tag. Each object contains information about the resource it is tagging, the tag key, and the tag value. Tags are returned by the VM::EC2->describe_tags() method.

In most cases you will not want to work with this object directly, but instead read tags by calling a resource object's tags() method, which returns a hash of key value pairs, or specify particular tag values as one of the filters in a describe_*() call.


The following object methods are supported:

 resourceId    -- The ID of the resource being tagged.
 resourceType  -- The type of the resource being tagged e.g. "image"
 key           -- The tag key.
 value         -- The tag value.


When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the resourceId.
