CostAndUsageCData Power BI Connector for AWS Data Management 2019 - Build 19.0.7362
Retrieves cost and usage metrics for your account.
Table Specific Information
In order to use this view, the user must be authorized to use billing and cost services.
SelectThe following sections describe the server-side query capabilities; the connector processes other parts of the query client-side, through collaborative query processing. You can turn off the client-side execution of the query by setting SupportEnhancedSQL to false.
Server-side filtering is not supported on metric columns, while it is supported on all the others. You can choose the metrics to be returned in the query.
Querying DimensionsDimensions are metadata that you can use to filter or group your results. This is the only view that supports GROUP BY server side.
Also, tags can be defined and used for filtering. Tags are retrieved dynamically.
Filtering on a Date Range
StartDate and EndDate have limitations from the API such that StartDate cannot be older than a year before the current date, while EndDate cannot be set to a value after the beginning of the next month (wrong values will be automatically corrected by the connector). Both are required from the API, so if they are not specified in the query, values will be assigned to them as described below:
- Only StartDate is missing: StartDate will get a value of one year before the EndDate. Considering the limitations mentioned before, the value will be eventually corrected by the connector.
- Only EndDate is missing: EndDate will get a value of one year after the StartDate. Considering the limitations mentioned before, the value will be eventually corrected by the connector.
- Both are missing: EndDate will be set at the beginning of next month. StartDate will be set one year before the EndDate.
ExamplesThe default query retrieves all available metrics for the maximum date range -- the past year, including this month.
SELECT * FROM CostAndUsageBelow you can find examples of queries that will be solved server side:
SELECT * FROM CostAndUsage WHERE Service != 'Amazon Simple Storage Device' SELECT * FROM CostAndUsage WHERE StartDate = '2017-07-10' SELECT * FROM CostAndUsage WHERE Service = 'Amazon Simple Storage Device' AND StartDate = '01-01-2018' SELECT * FROM CostAndUsage WHERE Service = 'Amazon S3' OR Service = 'Amazon DynamoDB' SELECT * FROM CostAndUsage GROUP BY AZ
