Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Service Description

The Cost Explorer API enables you to programmatically query your cost and usage data. You can query for aggregated data such as total monthly costs or total daily usage. You can also query for granular data, such as the number of daily write operations for Amazon DynamoDB database tables in your production environment.

Service Endpoint

The Cost Explorer API provides the following endpoint:

For information about costs associated with the Cost Explorer API, see AWS Cost Management Pricing.

Sending a Request Using CostExplorer

var costexplorer = new AWS.CostExplorer();
costexplorer.getCostAndUsage(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the CostExplorer object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var costexplorer = new AWS.CostExplorer({apiVersion: '2017-10-25'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the costexplorer service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  costexplorer: '2017-10-25',
  // other service API versions
};

var costexplorer = new AWS.CostExplorer();

  • sslEnabled (Boolean)

    whether to enable SSL for requests.

  • paramValidation (Boolean|map)

    whether input parameters should be validated against the operation description before sending the request. Defaults to true. Pass a map to enable any of the following specific validation features:

    • min [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the min constraint. This is enabled by default when paramValidation is set to true.
    • max [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the max constraint.
    • pattern [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches a regular expression.
    • enum [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches one of the allowable enum values.
  • computeChecksums (Boolean)

    whether to compute checksums for payload bodies when the service accepts it (currently supported in S3 only)

  • convertResponseTypes (Boolean)

    whether types are converted when parsing response data. Currently only supported for JSON based services. Turning this off may improve performance on large response payloads. Defaults to true.

  • correctClockSkew (Boolean)

    whether to apply a clock skew correction and retry requests that fail because of an skewed client clock. Defaults to false.

  • s3ForcePathStyle (Boolean)

    whether to force path style URLs for S3 objects.

  • s3BucketEndpoint (Boolean)

    whether the provided endpoint addresses an individual bucket (false if it addresses the root API endpoint). Note that setting this configuration option requires an endpoint to be provided explicitly to the service constructor.

  • s3DisableBodySigning (Boolean)

    whether S3 body signing should be disabled when using signature version v4. Body signing can only be disabled when using https. Defaults to true.

  • retryDelayOptions (map)

    A set of options to configure the retry delay on retryable errors. Currently supported options are:

    • base [Integer] — The base number of milliseconds to use in the exponential backoff for operation retries. Defaults to 100 ms for all services except DynamoDB, where it defaults to 50ms.
    • customBackoff [function] — A custom function that accepts a retry count and returns the amount of time to delay in milliseconds. The base option will be ignored if this option is supplied.

    a map of service identifiers (the lowercase service class name) with the API version to use when instantiating a service. Specify 'latest' for each individual that can use the latest available version.

  • logger (#write, #log)

    an object that responds to .write() (like a stream) or .log() (like the console object) in order to log information about requests

  • systemClockOffset (Number)

    an offset value in milliseconds to apply to all signing times. Use this to compensate for clock skew when your system may be out of sync with the service time.

getReservationCoverage(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Retrieves the reservation coverage for your account. This enables you to see how much of your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Amazon ElastiCache, Amazon Relational Database Service, or Amazon Redshift usage is covered by a reservation. An organization's master account can see the coverage of the associated member accounts. For any time period, you can filter data about reservation usage by the following dimensions:

  • AZ

  • CACHE_ENGINE

  • DATABASE_ENGINE

  • DEPLOYMENT_OPTION

  • INSTANCE_TYPE

  • LINKED_ACCOUNT

  • OPERATING_SYSTEM

  • PLATFORM

  • REGION

  • SERVICE

  • TAG

  • TENANCY

To determine valid values for a dimension, use the GetDimensionValues operation.

costexplorer.getReservationCoverage(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • TimePeriod — (map)

      The start and end dates of the period that you want to retrieve data about reservation coverage for. You can retrieve data for a maximum of 13 months: the last 12 months and the current month. The start date is inclusive, but the end date is exclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 and end is 2017-05-01, then the cost and usage data is retrieved from 2017-01-01 up to and including 2017-04-30 but not including 2017-05-01.

      • Startrequired — (String)

        The beginning of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The start date is inclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01, AWS retrieves cost and usage data starting at 2017-01-01 up to the end date.

      • Endrequired — (String)

        The end of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The end date is exclusive. For example, if end is 2017-05-01, AWS retrieves cost and usage data from the start date up to, but not including, 2017-05-01.

getReservationPurchaseRecommendation(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Gets recommendations for which reservations to purchase. These recommendations could help you reduce your costs. Reservations provide a discounted hourly rate (up to 75%) compared to On-Demand pricing.

AWS generates your recommendations by identifying your On-Demand usage during a specific time period and collecting your usage into categories that are eligible for a reservation. After AWS has these categories, it simulates every combination of reservations in each category of usage to identify the best number of each type of RI to purchase to maximize your estimated savings.

For example, AWS automatically aggregates your Amazon EC2 Linux, shared tenancy, and c4 family usage in the US West (Oregon) Region and recommends that you buy size-flexible regional reservations to apply to the c4 family usage. AWS recommends the smallest size instance in an instance family. This makes it easier to purchase a size-flexible RI. AWS also shows the equal number of normalized units so that you can purchase any instance size that you want. For this example, your RI recommendation would be for c4.large because that is the smallest size instance in the c4 instance family.

Examples:

Calling the getReservationPurchaseRecommendation operation

var params = {
  Service: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */

  ServiceSpecification: {
    EC2Specification: {
      OfferingClass: STANDARD | CONVERTIBLE
    }
  },
  TermInYears: ONE_YEAR | THREE_YEARS
};
costexplorer.getReservationPurchaseRecommendation(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

You can use GetDimensionValues to determine the possible dimension values. Currently, you can group only by SUBSCRIPTION_ID.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the getReservationUtilization operation

var params = {
  TimePeriod: { /* required */
    End: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
    Start: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
  },
  Filter: { /* Expression */
    And: [
      /* recursive Expression */,
      /* more items */
    ],
    Dimensions: {
      Key: AZ | INSTANCE_TYPE | LINKED_ACCOUNT | OPERATION | PURCHASE_TYPE | REGION | SERVICE | USAGE_TYPE | USAGE_TYPE_GROUP | RECORD_TYPE | OPERATING_SYSTEM | TENANCY | SCOPE | PLATFORM | SUBSCRIPTION_ID | LEGAL_ENTITY_NAME | DEPLOYMENT_OPTION | DATABASE_ENGINE | CACHE_ENGINE | INSTANCE_TYPE_FAMILY | BILLING_ENTITY | RESERVATION_ID,
      Values: [

};
costexplorer.getReservationUtilization(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • TimePeriod — (map)

      Sets the start and end dates for retrieving RI utilization. The start date is inclusive, but the end date is exclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 and end is 2017-05-01, then the cost and usage data is retrieved from 2017-01-01 up to and including 2017-04-30 but not including 2017-05-01.

      • Startrequired — (String)

        The beginning of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The start date is inclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01, AWS retrieves cost and usage data starting at 2017-01-01 up to the end date.

      • Endrequired — (String)

        The end of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The end date is exclusive. For example, if end is 2017-05-01, AWS retrieves cost and usage data from the start date up to, but not including, 2017-05-01.

    • PredictionIntervalLevel — (Integer)

      Cost Explorer always returns the mean forecast as a single point. You can request a prediction interval around the mean by specifying a confidence level. The higher the confidence level, the more confident Cost Explorer is about the actual value falling in the prediction interval. Higher confidence levels result in wider prediction intervals.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Total — (map)

        How much you're forecasted to use over the forecast period.

        • Amount — (String)

          The actual number that represents the metric.

        • Unit — (String)

          The unit that the metric is given in.

      • ForecastResultsByTime — (Array<map>)

        The forecasts for your query, in order. For DAILY forecasts, this is a list of days. For MONTHLY forecasts, this is a list of months.

        • TimePeriod — (map)

          The period of time that the forecast covers.

          • Startrequired — (String)

            The beginning of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The start date is inclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01, AWS retrieves cost and usage data starting at 2017-01-01 up to the end date.

          • Endrequired — (String)

            The end of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The end date is exclusive. For example, if end is 2017-05-01, AWS retrieves cost and usage data from the start date up to, but not including, 2017-05-01.

        • MeanValue — (String)

          The mean value of the forecast.

        • PredictionIntervalLowerBound — (String)

          The lower limit for the prediction interval.

        • PredictionIntervalUpperBound — (String)

          The upper limit for the prediction interval.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.
