Platform(s)

Description

The ""Copy Tags to Snapshots"" feature of the RDS instance {AwsRdsDbInstance} is disabled. This feature allows you to automatically copy tags set on an RDS instance to automated or manual snapshots that get created from the instance. It is a convenient way to write metadata onto snapshots to match the parent RDS instance.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    Enable the ""Copy Tags to Snapshots"" feature for all RDS instances. This will ensure that the tags set on the parent instance get copied over to any snapshots that get created from the instance.
