Options

--time-period (structure)

The period of time that you want the forecast to cover. The start date must be equal to or no later than the current date to avoid a validation error.

Start -> (string)

The beginning of the time period. The start date is inclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 , Amazon Web Services retrieves cost and usage data starting at 2017-01-01 up to the end date. The start date must be equal to or no later than the current date to avoid a validation error.

End -> (string)

The end of the time period. The end date is exclusive. For example, if end is 2017-05-01 , Amazon Web Services 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"
}

--metric (string)

Which metric Cost Explorer uses to create your forecast. For more information about blended and unblended rates, see Why does the "blended" annotation appear on some line items in my bill? .

Valid values for a GetCostForecast call are the following:

  • AMORTIZED_COST
  • BLENDED_COST
  • NET_AMORTIZED_COST
  • NET_UNBLENDED_COST
  • UNBLENDED_COST

Possible values:

  • BLENDED_COST
  • UNBLENDED_COST
  • AMORTIZED_COST
  • NET_UNBLENDED_COST
  • NET_AMORTIZED_COST
  • USAGE_QUANTITY
  • NORMALIZED_USAGE_AMOUNT

--granularity (string)

How granular you want the forecast to be. You can get 3 months of DAILY forecasts or 12 months of MONTHLY forecasts.

The GetCostForecast operation supports only DAILY and MONTHLY granularities.

Possible values:

  • DAILY
  • MONTHLY
  • HOURLY

--filter (structure)

The filters that you want to use to filter your forecast. The GetCostForecast API supports filtering by the following dimensions:

  • AZ
  • INSTANCE_TYPE
  • LINKED_ACCOUNT
  • LINKED_ACCOUNT_NAME
  • 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
  • INSTANCE_TYPE_FAMILY
  • BILLING_ENTITY
  • RESERVATION_ID
  • SAVINGS_PLAN_ARN

Or -> (list)

Return results that match either Dimension object.

(structure)

Use Expression to filter in various Cost Explorer APIs.

Not all Expression types are supported in each API. Refer to the documentation for each specific API to see what is supported.

There are two patterns:

  • Simple dimension values.
    • There are three types of simple dimension values: CostCategories , Tags , and Dimensions .
    • For each filter type, 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 corresponding Expression for this example is as follows: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "REGION", "Values": [ "us-east-1", “us-west-1” ] } }
      • As shown in the previous example, lists of dimension values are combined with OR when applying the filter.
    • You can also set different match options to further control how the filter behaves. Not all APIs support match options. Refer to the documentation for each specific API to see what is supported.
      • For example, you can filter for linked account names that start with “a”.
      • The corresponding Expression for this example is as follows: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "LINKED_ACCOUNT_NAME", "MatchOptions": [ "STARTS_WITH" ], "Values": [ "a" ] } }
  • Compound Expression types 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. By doing this, you can filter by more advanced options.
    • For example, you can filter by ((REGION == us-east-1 OR REGION == us-west-1) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer) .
    • The corresponding Expression for this example is as follows: { "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": [ ... ], "Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

The following is an example of the corresponding error message: "Expression has more than one roots. Only one root operator is allowed for each expression: And, Or, Not, Dimensions, Tags, CostCategories"

Note

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

For the GetReservationPurchaseRecommendation action, only NOT is supported. AND and OR aren't supported. Dimensions are limited to LINKED_ACCOUNT .

--prediction-interval-level (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.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
