As of now, both the aws-* and amazon-* version of the tags are synonyms for each other.

So, which one of them should we have as the master?

Do we want the aws-* style tag or the amazon-* style tag?

1 Answer 1


The master tag should be the official service name

For example, is the correct tag, because the product name is AWS Lambda (and, not to mention, everyone calls it AWS Lambda).

As a general rule, most of the products are [amazon-*], except CLI, CodeDeploy, KMS and Lambda. Let me know if I've missed any, though.

    Completely agree, it's hard to remember which ones are 'Amazon' and which are 'AWS' but we should be consistent. Commented Apr 16, 2017 at 15:45
  • I think amazon-cloudwatch is resolving in the wrong direction, it appears to be resolving to aws-cloudwatch. Commented Apr 16, 2017 at 21:06
  • Would there be anything wrong with creating aliases for all of them so it gets automatically canonicalized by the site?

  • @chicks Yes, I think the idea here is for both tags to be synonymised—I intended to discuss which tag should be the 'master' (the tag that should the 'canonical' one). Is that what you're wondering about, or something else?

    It wasn't clear to me that we were keeping the aliases, but rereading the question the context is more obvious.
