Configure the Cost and Usage Report in CloudCheckr

If you haven't done so already, you'll need to configure the CUR in AWS first. Otherwise, continue on!
To ensure that CloudCheckr can import the CUR, you must first activate at least one Cost Allocation Tag in AWS.

After you enable the tag in AWS, you must wait for AWS to run the next CUR (approximately six hours) before you can configure the CUR in CloudCheckr. Otherwise, you will get an error.

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.
