Define the schedule for downloading AWS billing data

Define the scheduled job that regularly uses a MID Server to download billing data from the provider. Cloud Management saves the data in a cost table and uses the information to generate reports.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_cmp.cloud_governor
Prepare the following items before you begin:
  • Set up a payer account that gets billing information for all linked accounts.
  • Create the Amazon S3 bucket that is the data storage area for the daily detailed billing records on the AWS account. The credential that is used to access the report must have permissions to the S3 bucket. You must set the S3 bucket based on the Order location. The AssumeRole policies MUST include an S3 access policy. You might assume that the AWS account that you always use can create an S3 bucket in the region where the CFT is being provisioned. If you use STS-based authentication, however, the AWS account might not be able to create the bucket because authentication is tied to the AssumeRole policies. See the "Setting Up an Amazon S3 Bucket for AWS Cost and Usage Reports" page on the AWS documentation for details.
  • Enable detailed billing reports on AWS. See the AWS documentation for details.
