If you use Azure Policy to add tags to resources in a resource group, how are existing and newly created resources affected?

Experience Level: Junior
Tags: Azure Cloud Azure Policy

Answer

  • Azure Policy doesn't affect resources that already exists, no changes are done to such resources
  • Azure Policy affects resources on creation - so when an "Add a Tag" policy exists, a tags defined by a policy are added to resources when they are created.

You can find the resources that don't comply with the policies in Azure Policy
