Configure the Cost and Usage Report in CloudCheckr

If you have already enabled a Cost and Usage Report (CUR) using an hourly basis, you can start your configuration in CloudCheckr using this procedure.

To ensure that CloudCheckr 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 CloudCheckr after the CUR uploads in AWS to ensure it is publishing with tags.

From the Billing & Cost Management dashboard in the AWS Management Console, click Cost Allocation Tags and click Activate.


Procedure

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

    The Edit Cost and Usage Report Configuration page opens.

  2. Provide the following information:
    • start date
    • report name
    • bucket name
    • bucket region
    • folder prefix
  3. Select the Enabled check box to indicate that you want the application to use the CUR.
  4. Click Save Configuration.
