Get-AzTag

Gets predefined Azure tags.

Syntax

Get-AzTag
   [[-Name] <String>]
   [-Detailed]
   [-DefaultProfile <IAzureContextContainer>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-AzTag cmdlet gets predefined Azure tags in your subscription. This cmdlet returns basic information about the tags or detailed information about tags and their values. All output objects include a Count property that represents the number of resources and resource groups to which the tags and values have been applied. The Azure Tags module that Get-AzTag is a part of can help you manage predefined Azure tags. An Azure tag is a name-value pair that you can use to categorize your Azure resources and resource groups, such as by department or cost center, or to track notes or comments about the resources and groups. You can define and apply tags in a single step, but predefined tags let you establish standard, consistent, predictable names and values for the tags in your subscription. To create a predefined tag, use the New-AzTag cmdlet. To apply a predefined tag to a resource group, use the Tag parameter of the New-AzTag cmdlet. To search resource groups for a specific tag name or name and value, use the Tag parameter of the Get-AzResourceGroup cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Get all predefined tags

PS C:\>Get-AzTag

Name      Count
========  =====

Department    5
FY2015        2
CostCenter   20

This command gets all predefined tags in the subscription. The Count property shows how many times the tag has been applied to resources and resource groups in the subscription.

Example 2: Get a tag by name

PS C:\>Get-AzTag -Name "Department"

Name:   Department
Count:  5
Values: 

        Name        Count
        ==========  =====

        Finance       2
        IT            3

This command gets detailed information about the Department tag and its values. The Count property shows how many times the tag and each of its values has been applied to resources and resource groups in the subscription.

Example 3: Get values of all tags

PS C:\>Get-AzTag -Detailed

Name:   Department
Count:  5
Values: 

        Name        Count
        ==========  =====

        Finance       2
        IT            3


Name:   FY2015
Count:  2


Name:   CostCenter
Count:  20
Values: 

        Name        Count
        ==========  =====

        0001          5
        0002         10
        0003          5

This command uses the Detailed parameter to get detailed information about all predefined tags in the subscription. Using the Detailed parameter is the equivalent of using the Name parameter for every tag.
