CostCategoryInheritedValueDimension

When creating or updating a cost category, you can define the CostCategoryRule rule type as INHERITED_VALUE. This rule type adds the flexibility of defining a rule that dynamically inherits the cost category value from the dimension value defined by CostCategoryInheritedValueDimension. For example, if you want to dynamically group costs that are based on the value of a specific tag key, first choose an inherited value rule type, then choose the tag dimension and specify the tag key to use.
