Consolidated Billing Report

The Consolidated Billing Summary Report shows you daily and month-to-date statistics for each of your consolidated AWS accounts. The totals for this report are taken directly from your AWS invoice. The Consolidated Billing Summary can be based on CloudWatch data or on your Detailed Billing Reports.

NOTE: Detailed Billing Reports are only available for CloudCheckr Pro accounts and include details such as costs, credits, net bill, tags, and service type. both Bill Monitoring and the detailed billing reports must be enabled before you can utilize the Consolidated Billing summary.

  • Daily Net Bill – the total Net Bill for the last complete day.
