Engineer Screencast Ep. 3: AWS Billing Source Setup
Now that you've deployed cloudtamer.io and tweaked the cloud service provider (CSP), user interface, and application settings to meet your unique needs, you'll want to set up the AWS Billing Source. This will allow you to pull the latest financial information for your AWS accounts.
In this screencast, I'll show you how to enable the AWS Monthly Reports and Cost and Usage Reports. Then, we'll walk through the process to add the service role to provide cloudtamer.io with access to your billing S3 buckets. Finally, I'll demonstrate how to add a Billing Source in cloudtamer.io.
AWS financial reporting is obviously a very big topic. To learn more, check out the AWS documentation on Cost and Usage Reports.
Episode 4 of this series will cover a variety of user-related functions and options in cloudtamer.io - group setup, user profiles and settings, permissions, and more. Stay tuned!
Joe is the CTO at cloudtamer.io.
