If you have not yet enabled the Cost and Usage Report (CUR), you can follow this procedure to configure those reports within your Amazon account(s). If you have already enabled a CUR using an hourly basis, you can start your configuration in CloudCheckr. See the Configure Cost and Usage Report in CloudCheckr topic for more information.
- Login to the AWS Billing Console.
- Click Reports from the left side of the console.
- Click Create report.
Note: You can also login to the AWS Management Console, go to the menu bar and right-click your account name, and select My Billing Dashboard from the fly-out menu.
The Billing & Cost Management Dashboard opens.
The AWS Cost and Usage Reports page opens.
The Create Report wizard opens and displays Step 1: Select Content.
On the Select Content form:
- create a report name
- select Hourly as the time unit
- select the Resource IDs checkbox to include resources in your report
- select Redshift to enable support this service
- modify the remaining optional settings as needed
Note: To reduce the time it takes to configure permissions, type the name of the S3 bucket where AWS publishes and stores your DBR.
What If I Need To Create an S3 Bucket?
Follow these steps to edit the S3 bucket properties and add a permission policy granting AWS access to publish your reports:
The Sample Policy dialog box opens.
The Bucket Policy editor opens.
A green checkbox indicates that the bucket is configured correctly.
Note: GZIP is the required format for compression.
Step 3: Review displays.
Now that you have configured your CUR in AWS, you must configure the CUR in our application. For instructions, review the Configure the Cost and Usage Report in CloudCheckr.
