Configure the filters for report data

By default, cost and billing reports display data for all virtual resources for the most recent 12-month period. You can apply filters to the data to fine-tune the reports. For example, you can specify that only data for resources that are tagged "Research Department" in Product category "BasicA1" should appear.
