type GetCostAndUsageInput struct { Filter *Expression `type:"structure"` Granularity *string `type:"string" enum:"Granularity"` GroupBy []*GroupDefinition `type:"list"` Metrics []*string `type:"list"` NextPageToken *string `type:"string"` TimePeriod *DateInterval `type:"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 INSTANCE_TYPE==m4.xlarge OR INSTANCE_TYPE==c4.large. The Expression for that looks like this:

{ "Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.xlarge", “c4.large”

] } }

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 ((INSTANCE_TYPE == m4.large OR INSTANCE_TYPE == m3.large) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer). The Expression for that looks like this:

{ "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [

"m4.x.large", "c4.large" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

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" ] } }

Type: *string

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

The GetCostAndUsageRequest operation supports only DAILY and MONTHLY granularities.


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


Type: []*string

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.

If you return the UsageQuantity metric, the service aggregates all usage numbers without taking into account the units. 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 GetCostAndUsage requests.


Type: *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.


The time period that you want the usage and costs for.



func (s GetCostAndUsageInput) GoString() string

GoString returns the string representation

SetTimePeriod sets the TimePeriod field's value.


func (s GetCostAndUsageInput) String() string

String returns the string representation


func (s *GetCostAndUsageInput) Validate() error

Validate inspects the fields of the type to determine if they are valid.
