How to use colons in tag names with EMR ETL runner?


#1

I’m using Cloudformation to spin up the necessary infrastructure for Snowplow. I configure the machine that runs the EMR ETL Runner via CloudInit. I would like to pass the stack ID into the configuration file, the tag name is aws:cloudformation:stack-id. How can I do that?

Hi @estahn - have you tried putting the tag value in double quotes?

monitoring:
  tags:
    stack: "aws:cloudformation:stack-id"

Does that work?

Hi Alex,

aws:cloudformation:stack-id is actually the key not the value.
