    Why don't you try AWS CLI?

    Basically I need to tag resources with name, department, .... ,Etc. Some tags have already been defined therefore I don't want to overwrite instead I want to log the ones already exist

    If you have access to the AWS console, you can use Tag editor: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/.../latest/gsg/tag-editor.html

    If you have dynamic tags that depends on content inside of instance do you can use system manager to run script using aws cli to get and set tags.

    We want to do this in a automated way as there are 1000's of resources. Console access will take too long
