Cost allocation reports

Amazon uses tags to organize resource costs on your cost allocation report. Amazon provides two types of cost allocation tags:

  • An Amazon-generated tag. Amazon defines, creates, and applies this tag for you.

  • User-defined tags. You define, create, and apply these tags.

You must activate both types of tags separately before they can appear in Cost Explorer or on a cost allocation report.

To activate Amazon-generated tags:

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

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Cost Allocation Tags.

  3. Under Amazon-Generated Cost Allocation Tags, choose Activate.

To activate user-defined tags:

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

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Cost Allocation Tags.

  3. Under User-Defined Cost Allocation Tags, choose Activate.

After you create and activate tags, Amazon generates a cost allocation report with your usage and costs grouped by your active tags. The cost allocation report includes all of your Amazon costs for each billing period. The report includes both tagged and untagged resources, so that you can clearly organize the charges for resources.

Note

Currently, any data transferred out from DynamoDB won't be broken down by tags on cost allocation reports.
