get-cost-and-usage-with-resources

Description

Retrieves cost and usage metrics with resources for your account. You can specify which cost and usage-related metric, such as BlendedCosts or UsageQuantity , that you want the request to return. You can also filter and group your data by various dimensions, such as SERVICE or AZ , in a specific time range. For a complete list of valid dimensions, see the GetDimensionValues operation. Management account in an organization in AWS Organizations have access to all member accounts. This API is currently available for the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud – Compute service only.

Note

This is an opt-in only feature. You can enable this feature from the Cost Explorer Settings page. For information on how to access the Settings page, see Controlling Access for Cost Explorer in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--time-period (structure)

Sets the start and end dates for retrieving Amazon Web Services costs. The range must be within the last 14 days (the start date cannot be earlier than 14 days ago). 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 .

Start -> (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.

End -> (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 .

Shorthand Syntax:

Start=string,End=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Start": "string",
  "End": "string"
}

--granularity (string)

Sets the AWS cost granularity to MONTHLY , DAILY , or HOURLY . If Granularity isn't set, the response object doesn't include the Granularity , MONTHLY , DAILY , or HOURLY .

Possible values:

  • DAILY
  • MONTHLY
  • HOURLY

--filter (structure)

Filters Amazon Web Services costs by different dimensions. For example, you can specify SERVICE and LINKED_ACCOUNT and get the costs that are associated with that account's usage of that service. You can nest Expression objects to define any combination of dimension filters. For more information, see Expression .

The GetCostAndUsageWithResources operation requires that you either group by or filter by a ResourceId . It requires the Expression "SERVICE = Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud - Compute" in the filter.

Or -> (list)

Return results that match either Dimension object.

(structure)

Use Expression to filter by cost or by usage. There are two patterns:

  • Simple dimension values - You can set the dimension name and values for the filters that you plan to use. For example, you can filter for REGION==us-east-1 OR REGION==us-west-1 . For GetRightsizingRecommendation , the Region is a full name (for example, REGION==US East (N. Virginia) . The Expression example looks like: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "REGION", "Values": [ "us-east-1", “us-west-1” ] } } The list of dimension values are OR'd together to retrieve cost or usage data. You can create Expression and DimensionValues objects using either with* methods or set* methods in multiple lines.
  • Compound dimension values with logical operations - You can use multiple Expression types and the logical operators AND/OR/NOT to create a list of one or more Expression objects. This allows you to filter on more advanced options. For example, you can filter on ((REGION == us-east-1 OR REGION == us-west-1) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer) . The Expression for that looks like this: { "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "REGION", "Values": [ "us-east-1", "us-west-1" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

Note

Because each Expression can have only one operator, the service returns an error if more than one is specified. The following example shows an Expression object that creates an error.

{ "And": [ ... ], "DimensionValues": { "Dimension": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

Note

For GetRightsizingRecommendation action, a combination of OR and NOT is not supported. OR is not supported between different dimensions, or dimensions and tags. NOT operators aren't supported. Dimensions are also limited to LINKED_ACCOUNT , REGION , or RIGHTSIZING_TYPE .

--metrics (list)

Which metrics are returned in the query. For more information about blended and unblended rates, see Why does the "blended" annotation appear on some line items in my bill? .

Valid values are AmortizedCost , BlendedCost , NetAmortizedCost , NetUnblendedCost , NormalizedUsageAmount , UnblendedCost , and UsageQuantity .

Note

If you return the UsageQuantity metric, the service aggregates all usage numbers without taking the units into account. For example, if you aggregate usageQuantity across all of Amazon EC2, the results aren't meaningful because Amazon EC2 compute hours and data transfer are measured in different units (for example, hours vs. GB). To get more meaningful UsageQuantity metrics, filter by UsageType or UsageTypeGroups .

Metrics is required for GetCostAndUsageWithResources requests.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--group-by (list)

You can group Amazon Web Services costs using up to two different groups: DIMENSION , TAG , COST_CATEGORY .

(structure)

Represents a group when you specify a group by criteria or in the response to a query with a specific grouping.

Type -> (string)

The string that represents the type of group.

Key -> (string)

Type=string,Key=string ...

JSON Syntax:

  }
  ...

--next-page-token (string)

The token to retrieve the next set of results. AWS provides the token when the response from a previous call has more results than the maximum page size.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
