How to get detailed AWS Usage information


How do I get detailed AWS Usage data from the Idea 11 AWS Usage Portal?


The Idea 11 AWS Usage Portal provides a number of useful reports, graphs and trends to allow you to analyse your AWS bill. Many of these reports are by service, region, or account.

  2. Select AWS Billing
  3. Expand Custom Reporting
  4. Select Common Searches
