Viewing your report - AWS Cost and Usage Reports

Viewing your report

To view information about your Cost and Usage Report, use the Billing and Cost Management console. To view your report’s files, you can use the Amazon S3 console.

Use the following procedures to find your report and report files.

To view your report details and files

  1. Sign in to the Billing and Cost Management console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/billing/home#/

  2. On the navigation pane, choose Cost & Usage Reports.

  3. From your list of reports, choose the name of the report that you want to view.

  4. On the Report Details page, you can view the report’s settings.

  5. To view the report’s files, note the Report path prefix on the Report Details page.

  6. Choose the bucket name listed under Amazon S3 bucket. The link opens this bucket in the Amazon S3 console.

  7. From the list of objects in the bucket, choose the folder named with the first part of the Report path prefix that you noted in step 5. For example, if your Report path prefix is example-report-prefix/example-report-name, then choose the folder named example-report-prefix.

  8. From the list of objects in the folder, choose the folder named with the second part of the Report path prefix that you noted in step 5. For example, if your Report path prefix is example-report-prefix/example-report-name, then choose the folder named example-report-name. This folder contains your report files.

Viewing the latest report version

AWS updates your Cost and Usage Report at least once a day until your charges are finalized. When you create a report, you can choose to create new report versions or overwrite the existing report version with every update.

If you configured your report to create new report versions with every update, then use the assemblyId in the manifest file to find the latest report files.

To view your latest report files when you have multiple report versions

  1. Sign in to the Billing and Cost Management console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/billing/home#/

  2. On the navigation pane, choose Cost & Usage Reports.

  3. From your list of reports, choose the name of the report that you want to view.

  4. On the Report Details page, note the Report path prefix.

  5. Choose the bucket name listed under Amazon S3 bucket. The link opens this bucket in the Amazon S3 console.

  6. From the list of objects in the bucket, choose the folder named with the first part of the Report path prefix that you noted in step 4. For example, if your Report path prefix is example-report-prefix/example-report-name, then choose the folder named example-report-prefix.

  7. From the list of objects in the folder, choose the folder named with the second part of the Report path prefix that you noted in step 4. For example, if your Report path prefix is example-report-prefix/example-report-name, then choose the folder named example-report-name.

  8. Open the folder named with the latest billing period (in the YYYYMMDD-YYYYMMDD format).

  9. Open the example-report-name-Manifest.json file.

  10. At the top of the manifest file, note the assemblyId. The assemblyId value corresponds to the name of the folder with the latest report files.

  11. Return to the Amazon S3 console page where you’re viewing the folder named with the latest billing period.

  12. Open the folder named with the assemblyId value that you noted in step 10. For example, if the assemblyId value is 20210129T123456Z, then open the folder named 20210129T123456Z/. This folder contains your latest report files.

Viewing your finalized report

After issuing your invoice at the end of the month, AWS finalizes your report’s usage charges. To determine if a line item on your report is final, review the bill/InvoiceId column. If the line item is final, then the bill/InvoiceId column is populated with an AWS invoice ID. If the line item is not yet final, then the bill/InvoiceId column is populated with the word "Estimated".

To determine if your entire report is finalized, review the bill/BillType column. If the report is final, then the bill/BillType column is populated with the word "Anniversary". If the report is not yet final, then the bill/BillType column is populated with the word "Estimated".

Note

After your report is finalized, AWS might update the report if AWS applies refunds, credits, or support fees to your usage for the month. Because Developer, Business, and Enterprise Support are calculated based on final usage charges, those are reflected on the sixth or seventh of the month for the prior month’s report. AWS applies credits or refunds based on the terms of your agreement or contract with AWS.
