Understand your invoice with reports

Depending on the settings of your billing profile, you receive monthly invoices either per asset type or per custom bucket.

To get a detailed view of your costs for a given invoice or during a given period, you can run a report using the attribution groups for Billing and invoicing in combination with other Dimensions and labels.

Attribution group: Invoices

The attribution group Invoices is used to analyze invoices issued to the following asset types, each invoice corresponds to an individual attribution entry:

  • Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud: For costs incurred by AWS accounts, Google Cloud billing accounts and Google Cloud projects

    • If you're using custom bucketing, attributions follow the naming convention [{billing_profile_id}] {billing_profile_name} - {bucket_name}.

    • Otherwise, attributions follow the naming convention [{billing_profile_id}] {billing_profile_name} - {asset_type}.

  • Looker: Looker invoices appear in the attribution entry named Looker.

For other asset types, only Microsoft Azure billing data is available in Cloud Analytics; it will stay in the pre-defined attribution entry named Unallocated.


The example report below uses the attribution group Invoices for invoices issued to a fictitious company:

Invoices attribution group

  • The company has a Billing profile US123123 with custom buckets.

  • Three buckets are listed individually, which means they are invoices issued to assets such as AWS accounts, Google Cloud billing accounts, and Google Cloud projects.

You can add more dimensions to further break down the invoice. Below is an example of the invoice issued to the bucket Engineering.

The example below combines all three attribution groups for Billing and invoicing for a breakdown of cost categories and savings.
