Apply the custom billing charge to Unblended cost—the amount that AWS bills a customer—or to List cost—the amount that CloudCheckr bills the customer based on usage and contractual charges.

If you are an MSP/Reseller, you must select List cost so that CloudCheckr can modify your customer's costs.

If you configured your custom cost to include RI Consuming Account Based Allocation, RI Unsharing, or Savings Plan Deallocation, you must apply List cost to your custom billing charge. Otherwise, you will get an error message.
Apply to charges that match these values

Only applies your custom billing charge when the parameters in your billing report match the values you selected for one or more of the following properties:

  • Account/Account Family
  • Region
  • AWS Service
  • Reserved Instance
  • Operation
  • Usage Type
  • Tag (Multiple tags treated as Tag 1 "OR" Tag 2)
Select Include all current and future EC2 Box and/or Include all current and future EC2 Heavy if you want the custom billing charge to inherit these usage types automatically any time AWS introduces a new usage type.
