Cluster Tagging is now supported by Amazon EKS

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is an open-source organised service which helps to automate deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications and simple to execute Kubernetes on AWS excluding to stand up or keep your individual Kubernetes control plane. Amazon EKS executes Kubernetes control plane instances across different Availability Zones to certify high availability. This automatically identifies and substitutes harmful control plane instances, and provides automated version upgrades and patching for them. Earlier, it was hard to manage access to handle the EKS API for discrete clusters cause tagging was not available for Amazon EKS clusters and you could not add metadata that specified the motive of the cluster for reporting reasons. Now you can add AWS tags to your Amazon EKS clusters. This makes it simple to manage access to the EKS API for handling your clusters. Also you can add custom tags to each Amazon EKS cluster. These tags can be used to control access to the EKS API for handling the cluster with the help of IAM. Now, cluster tagging is supported for every new and existing EKS clusters through the AWS API, Console, and SDKs. Support for tagging clusters using CloudFormation and the eksctl command line tool is coming soon.
