mark-for-op

Tag resources for future action.

The optional ‘tz’ parameter can be used to adjust the clock to align with a given timezone. The default value is ‘utc’.

If neither ‘days’ nor ‘hours’ is specified, Cloud Custodian will default to marking the resource for action 4 days in the future.

   resource: azure.vm
   filters:

tag-trim

Automatically remove tags from an azure resource. Azure Resources and Resource Groups have a limit of 15 tags. In order to make additional tag space on a set of resources, this action can be used to remove enough tags to make the desired amount of space while preserving a given set of tags. Setting the space value to 0 removes all tags but those listed to preserve.

example

policies:
  - name: azure-tag-trim
    comment: |
      Any instances with 14 or more tags get tags removed until
      they match the target tag count, in this case 13, so
      that we free up tag slots for another usage.
    resource: azure.resourcegroup
    filters:
        # Filter down to resources that do not have the space
        # to add additional required tags. For example, if an
        # additional 2 tags need to be added to a resource, with
        # 15 tags as the limit, then filter down to resources that
        # have 14 or more tags since they will need to have tags
        # removed for the 2 extra. This also ensures that metrics
        # reporting is correct for the policy.
       - type: value
         key: "length(Tags)"
         op: ge
         value: 14
    actions:
       - type: tag-trim
         space: 2
         preserve:
          - OwnerContact
          - Environment
          - downtime
          - custodian_status
