A tag is a custom description that is applied to a node. A tag, once applied, can be helpful when managing nodes using Knife or when building recipes by providing alternate methods of grouping similar types of information.

The knife tag subcommand is used to apply tags to nodes on a Chef server.

  The configuration file to use.
-d, --disable-editing
  Use to prevent the $EDITOR from being opened and to accept data as-is.
--defaults
  Use to have Knife use the default value instead of asking a user to provide one.
-e EDITOR, --editor EDITOR
  The $EDITOR that is used for all interactive commands.
-E ENVIRONMENT, --environment ENVIRONMENT
  The name of the environment. When this option is added to a command, the command will run only against the named environment.
