Create Tag Mappings Using CSV Upload

If you have a large list of tag mappings you want to create in CloudCheckr, you can create tag mappings in bulk created via a CSV file.

This process mirrors the tag mapping feature included in the Tags (From Detailed Billing) section.


Procedure

Let's say you want to create a Master Tag for Environment | Development.

You need to populate four columns in the CSV file:

  • Column A - Master Tag Key
  • Column B - Master Tag Value
  • Column C - Tag/Property Selector
  • Column D - Mapped Tag/Property Key
  • Column E - Mapped Tag/Property Value
If you entered the column names in the header, you must remove the header row or you won't able to import the CSV file.
This procedure will show you how you can create create tag mappings in bulk created via a CSV file:
  1. In the CSV spreadsheet, populate column A with Environment and column B with Development.
  2. Select the mapping type and add the mappings for the three cost tags.
  3. Those will each go into columns C, D, and E respectively. To select the tag mapping type, the value of column C must be false. To select the property mapping type, column C must be true. The properties available to map on are:

    • Account
    • AvailabilityZone
    • Operation
    • Region
    • Resource
    • Service
    • UsageType

    When adding multiple mappings to a "Master Tag" you don't need to populate Columns A and B for each row.  When those two columns are empty CloudCheckr will apply all tags within Columns C and D to the "Master Tag" above.

    To add a new "Master Tag" in the spreadsheet, just add the new Key and Value to Columns A and B.  In C and D add the new mappings you want to funnel to that "Master Tag".

    Once you have your spreadsheet created with the tags and mappings you want to implement, save the file as a CSV to your computer. Then, in the Tag Mappings page in CloudCheckr click the “Upload CSV” button and upload this file.
