Infrastructure Insights AWS ELB Tags

I'm having trouble getting things to group properly based on AWS tags. Currently, all of our AWS resources are grouped by tags. For example, EC2 Instances and ELBs may both share "Brand = myBrand".

I've linked Splunk to our AWS Infrastructure and all of our instances are posting metrics to Splunk, however only the EC2 instances are showing their tags in the 'dimensions' column. Is there any configuration anywhere that allows me to specify that ELBs should also show their tags in Infrastructure Insights?

Hi Adam - we've confirmed this is an issue. Tags for ELB should be broken out just like they are for EC2 instances. We're looking into it.

Thanks for the reply. That's great, I'll keep an eye out for the fix. Do you guys have an ETA for that release?

We still have to explore our best avenue to make this happen. The AWS TA is returning this info and I can't tell you yet whether we can magically make it appear or if we need to make the change in the TA itself. Without saying things I am not allowed to say, I'd guess it might be a little while, but we're definitely watching it!
