      Feature Overview (aka. Goal Summary)  

      To improve automation, governance and security, AWS customers extensively use AWS Tags to track resources. Customers wants the ability to change user tags on day 2 without having to recreate a new cluster to have 1 or more tags added/modified.

      Goals (aka. expected user outcomes)

      The observable functionality that the user now has as a result of receiving this feature. Complete during New status.

      • Cluster administrator can add one or more tags to an existing cluster. 
      • Cluster administrator can remove one or more tags from an existing cluster.
      • Cluster administrator can add one or more tags just to machine-pool / node-pool in the ROSA with HCP cluster.
      • All ROSA client interfaces (ROSA CLI, API, UI) can utilise the day2 tagging feature on ROSA with HCP clusters
      • All OSD client interfaces (API, UI, CLI) can utilize the day2 tagging feature on ROSA with HCP clusters
      • This feature does not affect the Red Hat owned day1 tags built into OCP/ROSA (there are 10 reserved spaces for tags, of the 50 available, leaving 40 spaces for customer provided tags)

      Requirements (aka. Acceptance Criteria):

      A list of specific needs or objectives that a feature must deliver in order to be considered complete.  Be sure to include nonfunctional requirements such as security, reliability, performance, maintainability, scalability, usability, etc.  Initial completion during Refinement status.

      • Following capabilities are available for AWS on standalone and HCP clusters.
      • OCP automatically tags the cloud resources with the Cluster's External ID. 
      • Tags added by default on Day 1 are not affected.
      • All existing active AWS resources in the OCP clusters have the tagging changes propagated.
      • All new AWS resources created by OCP reflect the changes to tagging.
      • Hive to support additional list of key=value strings on MachinePools
        • These are AWS user-defined / custom tags, not to be confused with node labels
        • ROSA CLI can accept a list of key=value strings with additional tag values
          • it currently can do this during cluster-install
        • The default tag(s) is/are still applied
        • NOTE: AWS limit of 50 tags per object (2 used automatically by OCP; with a third to be added soon; 10 reserved for Red Hat overall, as at least 2-3 are used by Managed Services) - customer's can only specify 40 tags max!
        • Must be able to modify tags after creation 
      • Support for OpenShift 4.15 onwards.


      This feature will only apply to ROSA with Hosted Control Planes, and ROSA Classic / standalone is excluded.

      Why is this important?

      • Customers want to use custom tagging for
        • access controls
        • chargeback/showback
        • cloud IAM conditional permissions
