Tags have released into public preview. Tags provide a way to conditionally allow or deny policies based on whether a resource has a specific tag. You can use tags and conditional enforcement of policies for fine-grained control across your resource hierarchy. For more information, see the Tags overview.

If you run one of the gcloud tool's add-iam-policy-binding commands, and the IAM policy contains conditional role bindings for that role, the gcloud tool prompts you to choose one of the condition expressions that exists in the policy. If you choose a condition expression that contains a comma, the command fails.

To work around this issue, use the --condition flag to specify a condition expression on the command line.
