Lumigo Tags add dimension to your Lambda functions so that they can be identified, managed, organized, searched for, and filtered in Lumigo.
They can be utilized to filter resources for projects, alerts and functions. Helping you simplify the complexity of monitoring distributed applications.

AWS Lambda Feature
Lumigo tags are available for AWS Lambda functions. Stay tuned for support in Containers!
To manually assign Lumigo Tags go to Functions, select the functions you want to assign the tags to, and click "Manage Lumigo Tags" to create a new tag or assign an existing tag.
To programmatically create and assign Lumigo Tags on your Lambda functions, create an AWS tag and set the key to
LUMIGO_TAG. Then set the Value for your chosen tag name that you want to appear on Lumigo, for example
This can be done via AWS command line tools or via the AWS Console UI. Refer to Tagging AWS Resources documentation for more information.
Lumigo Tags are available as a filter. Once they have been set against selected functions. This enables a filtered resource view to only view resources with the nominated tag within the view.
Lumigo Tags can be used to set specific resource monitoring filters in Alerts, This allows for more dynamic control over Function specific alerts that can be triggered on tagged resources.
To create and view alerts, Navigate to Alerts on the bottom left of the Lumigo Dashboard, then click Functions with Lumigo Tags to define the required Lumigo Tags.
For example: A Lumigo Tag
Production added manually to a function via the Lumigo Dashboard will be changed to
Development, if defined as a value to the key
LUMIGO_TAG using AWS Tags.
Additionally its important to note the following:
- Each function can have only one Lumigo Tag.
- Tag names are case-sensitive.
- Tag names can only contain alphanumeric characters, spaces, dashes and underscores.
- Tag names must be between 1 and 256 characters.
- Programmatically created tags cannot be edited via the Lumigo UI.
As you create a tagging strategy, it is recommend to follow best practices:
- Create tags to categorize functions by environment, service, owner, or other criteria.
- Use a standardized, case-sensitive tag format, and apply it consistently.
