Attributions allow you to group cloud resources based on your business aspects, for example, by teams, environments, or product lines.
You can use attributions for various purposes:
Attribute cloud spend: Attribute your cloud spend to the relevant entities in Cloud Analytics reports. You can also use attributions to create synthetic custom metrics and go beyond the basic metrics of Cost, Usage, and Savings.
Create alerts: Track various dimensions in your cloud environments.
Manage budgets: Define the scope of a budget, for example, a budget for a team or a product.
Monitor cost anomalies: Monitor cost anomalies in a subset of your overall cloud spend.
Daily cost digests: Receive daily email digests on your spend for the scope of your attributions.
Manage organizations: Provide a focused Cloud Analytics experience to a group of users.

To access Attributions, select Analytics from the top navigation bar, and then select Attributions.
You can filter attributions by their properties.
There are two types of attributions: Preset attributions, and Custom attributions.
You can create your own attributions based on an existing one, or completely from scratch.
To view the configurations of an attribution, select the attribution name on the main Attributions screen to open the specific attribution page.
You'll find the properties and logic of the attribution, and a preview chart if there is meaningful result. You can also:
Clone the attribution to build your own custom one.
Switch between the Stacked Column view and the Table view.
Download the Stacked Column view as a PNG image or a PDF document using the the hamburger menu (three bars icon) in the upper-right corner of the chart.
Users with the Admin role can bulk edit permissions of custom attributions.
Select the checkboxes of the target custom attributions.
Select Edit permissions.
You can change the permission of individual users or your whole team to Viewer, Editor, or remove their access. You can also transfer the ownership of an attribution to an individual user. See Change permissions for more information.
