Verifying that mandatory tags are applied

Before a VM instance is provisioned to a user, a workflow verifies that mandatory tags are applied to the instance.

  • If all mandatory tags in the tag table have valid values, the system provisions the VM.
  • If not, then a CI task is created and the task displays the Mandatory tags have no value error message.

EC2

Before an EC2 VM instance is provisioned to a user, the Amazon EC2 VM Provision workflow checks the mandatory tags. The EC2CreateInstanceCheck extension point contains the checking logic.

CloudFormation

Before an Amazon CloudFormation stack is provisioned, the CloudFormation stack provision workflow checks the mandatory tags. The CloudFormationBuildCreateStackRequest extension point contains the checking logic.
