Description

Using default tags is a way to ensure all resources that support tags are tagged during creation. It was detected that default tags are not used under tenancy {OciIdentityCompartment.Name}. It is advised to create default tags like “CreatedBy“ at the Root Compartment level to ensure all resources get tagged. In case of an incident, having default tags like “CreatedBy“ applied will provide information on who created the resource without having to search the Audit logs.
