AWS Service Catalog Announces Budget Visibility

Posted on: Sep 12, 2019

AWS Service Catalog now provides budget visibility on your portfolios and products by integrating with AWS Budgets. With this feature you can create and associate budgets with portfolios and products and track your spend. Portfolio and product budget creation is simplified using TagOptions and AutoTags, providing administrators with visibility into the budget and month-to-date spend. To get started, activate your tags and create your budget in AWS Budgets, then associate that budget to your portfolio or product in AWS Service Catalog. This feature is available in all commercial regions where AWS Service Catalog and AWS Budgets are available.

AWS Budgets lets you set custom cost budgets that alert you when your costs exceed, or are forecasted to exceed, your budgeted amount. 

AWS Service Catalog allows organizations to create and manage catalogs of IT services that are approved for use on AWS. These IT services can include everything from virtual machine images, servers, software, and databases to complete multi-tier application architectures. AWS Service Catalog is used by enterprises, system integrators, and managed service providers to organize, govern, and provision cloud resources on AWS.
