What is tag propagation?
Some cloud providers support the propagation of your Cloud 66 tags into their own tagging systems. Tag Propagation allows you to easily identify and link components between your Cloud 66 account and supported cloud provider platforms.
Currently tag propagation supports cloud servers and load balancers.
How does tag propagation work?
Cloud 66 pushes your server tags up to your provider and transforms them so that they are compatible with your cloud provider's systems. This allows you to easily identify components across platforms. The exact nature of this transformation depends on:
- Whether they are simple text tags, or key/value pairs
- Whether the provider supports key/value formatting for tags
The level of support for tag propagation differs depending on the cloud provider. Check out our docs for more details.
