Start & Stop of EC2 instance using tags in Lambda function


Is there is any way to start & stop an EC2 instance using the tags in lambda function. Currently i am using a lambda function to start & stop an EC2 instance by the instance id. if the instance got replaced, the lambda function is not working. So inorder to fix this issue, i am curious on setting up a lambda function to start & stop the instance by using the Tags instead of instance id.

Not directly with the API. You will need to update your Lambda function to DescribeInstances and filter on the tag key/value combination you desire and pass the returned instance ID to the relevant StartInstances/StopInstances method.
