CostCategoryRule - AWS Billing and Cost Management

CostCategoryRule

Rules are processed in order. If there are multiple rules that match the line item, then the first rule to match is used to determine that Cost Category value.

Contents

InheritedValue

The value the line item is categorized as if the line item contains the matched dimension.

Type: CostCategoryInheritedValueDimension object

Required: No

Rule

An Expression object used to categorize costs. This supports dimensions, tags, and nested expressions. Currently the only dimensions supported are LINKED_ACCOUNT, SERVICE_CODE, RECORD_TYPE, and LINKED_ACCOUNT_NAME.

Root level OR isn't supported. We recommend that you create a separate rule instead.

RECORD_TYPE is a dimension used for Cost Explorer APIs, and is also supported for Cost Category expressions. This dimension uses different terms, depending on whether you're using the console or API/JSON editor. For a detailed comparison, see Term Comparisons in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.

Type: Expression object

Required: No

Type

You can define the CostCategoryRule rule type as either REGULAR or INHERITED_VALUE. The INHERITED_VALUE rule type adds the flexibility of defining a rule that dynamically inherits the cost category value from the dimension value defined by CostCategoryInheritedValueDimension. For example, if you want to dynamically group costs based on the value of a specific tag key, first choose an inherited value rule type, then choose the tag dimension and specify the tag key to use.

Type: String

Valid Values: REGULAR | INHERITED_VALUE

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 50.

Pattern: ^(?! )[\p{L}\p{N}\p{Z}-_]*(?<! )$
