CI rate cards A configuration item (CI) rate card is a group of recurring configuration item costs associated with multiple configuration items. Rate cards make it easier to enter and track costs that are the same across multiple configuration items. Rate cards usually follow a framework in which all costs are recorded and allocated. For example, the contract costs of a specific model server in a New York datacenter could be different than the same server model running in a London datacenter. Each model would have a separate rate card detailing the costs. Users with the Financial Admin (financial_mgmt_admin) and Financial User (financial_mgmt_user) roles can manage CI rate cards.
