  • Release Date: March 12, 2019

Tag defaults let you specify tags to be applied automatically to all resources, at the time of creation, in a specific compartment. This feature allows you to ensure that appropriate tags are applied to resources without requiring the user who is creating the resource to have access to the tag namespaces.

This feature introduces a new IAM resource type, tag-defaults. See Required Permissions for Working with Tag Defaults for more information.
