Configure the Cost and Usage Report in CloudCheckr

Introduction

If you have already enabled a CUR using an hourly basis, you can start your configuration in CloudCheckr using this procedure.

Note: To ensure that our application can import the CUR, you must activate at least one tag in AWS first. If you need to activate your cost allocation tags in AWS, you must finish your configuration in our application after the CUR uploads in AWS to ensure it is publishing with tags.

How Do I Enable Cost Allocation Tags in AWS?

  1. From the Billing & Cost Management Dashboard, select Cost Allocation Tags from the left side of the console.
  2. Select the check box next to tag(s) you want enabled and click Activate.


Procedure

  1. From the left navigation pane, choose Account Settings > Cost and Usage Report.

  2. The Edit Cost and Usage Report Configuration page opens.

    • bucket name
    • bucket region
    • folder prefix

  4. Select the Enabled check box to indicate that you want the application to use the CUR.
