Add Bulk Metadata for Instance

You can add metadata for an instance in bulk, that is, add multiple key-value pairs at once. You can assign multiple tags to an instance, such as the operating system, the hardware architecture or the purpose for which the instance has been created. The tags assigned to the instance can be used to search for the instance, based on the tag name.

You must be a self-service user or an administrator to perform this operation.
