This article describes the main steps required to create the AWS CUR Business Package:
- Providing read access for Anodot using a cross-account AWS role
- Creating the data source
- Creating the stream
Providing read access for Anodot using a cross-account AWS role
Anodot can access the files on your CUR bucket only after you explicitly allow it. To provide read access to Anodot and to create a cross-account AWS role to provide Anodot with access to the CUR files, refer to this section.
IMPORTANT: New CUR data sources should use the role-based access method mentioned above. The previous method of updating the bucket policy (described in Creating an AWS CUR Business Package Data Source) is currently supported for existing data sources, but is no longer available for new sources. Contact us to ensure safe migration of existing sources without losing data.
Creating an AWS CUR Business Package Data Source
- In the Streams page, click Sources +.
- In Source Types, click START on the AWS Cost Monitoring tile.
- In the displayed window, select the bucket's region, enter the bucket name, and enter a folder name (optional).
- Update the bucket policy (as described in AWS S3) to enable anodot.com to access your CUR bucket.
- Click Continue to display the Stream Query.
Creating an AWS CUR Stream Query
- In the Streams page, choose the AWS Cost Monitoring source for which you want to create a stream query.
Note: The streams associated with that source are displayed. If the Streams panel is empty, no stream queries exist for that source.
- Click Streams + to display the Stream Query window.
- At the top of the Stream Query window, set a name for the stream.
- In the CUR Reports Path field, enter the path leading to the required CUR report folder and click Go.
- In the First CUR Report field, select the first billing period you want to collect.
- In the Measures & Dimensions section, choose the relevant template from the dropdown list of templates; measures and dimensions will be added based on the selected template.
- In the AWS Resource Tags section, choose the relevant resource tags to use from the list of tags included in your CUR file.
- Click NEXT. The Stream Table is displayed, as described in Stream Tables.
