Use DNS record comments and tags to categorize and clarify the purpose of DNS records within Cloudflare.
Comments provide a unique descriptions for specific records, whereas tags group similar records into categories.
These attributes are particularly useful when:
- Multiple teams are managing DNS records within the same zone.
- Your zone contains a large number of DNS records.
- You want to filter your DNS records based on matching attributes (for example, when they are managed by the same team or used for the same application).

Tags are treated as an array of
name:value pairs, meaning that tag names are not case sensitive and can only contain letters, numbers,
_. For tag values, the same character restrictions apply as for comments.
