Introducing AWS Cost Categories
Starting today, customers can access AWS Cost Categories to map their cost and usage information to their unique internal business structures. AWS Cost Categories enables users to define category rules to map and categorize costs using billing dimensions such as accounts and tags. For example, customers can map specific accounts and tags to multiple projects and track costs based on them. You can use use AWS Cost Categories to define custom rules to map to your internal business structures. After defining categorization rules, the system will organize your costs starting at the beginning of the month. Customers can visualize and monitor spend by viewing these categories in AWS Cost Explorer and AWS Budgets.
