Hi! How can I create custom tag for EC2 instances, started via Bamboo? Bamboo Server version 7.2.4.

Hi Mithrim, welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Unfortunately this is still not supported by Bamboo - please watch and vote for the following issue to raise Atlassian's priority to finally address this extremely long standing feature gap:

Potential workarounds

The issue comments describe a few approaches - nowadays I'd look into automating this on the AWS side by listening to the EC2 instance startup via EventBridge and applying the tag via a Lambda function provisioned as an Serverless Application Model (SAM) app.

Thanks for asking my question. I'm already find decision, may be it will be useful for somebody.

import os
import subprocess
import json

cmd = 'aws ec2 describe-tags > /tmp/aws_tags.json'
with open("/tmp/aws_tags.json", "r") as read_file:
    tags = json.load(read_file)

for elem in tags.values():
    for elem1 in elem:
        if elem1['ResourceType'] == 'instance' and 'known tag' in elem1['Value']:
            cmd = f"aws ec2 create-tags --resources {elem1['ResourceId']} --tags Key=Name,Value=new_tag"
  , shell=True)


This python script run on instance startup ang change tags via aws cli
