AWS Cost Explorer Documentation

AWS Cost Explorer lets you explore your AWS costs and usage at both a high level and at a detailed level of analysis. AWS Cost Explorer provides you with a set of default reports that you can use as the starting place for your analysis. From there, you can use the filtering and grouping capabilities to dive deeper into your cost and usage data and generate custom insights.

The AWS Cost Explorer API is the low-latency, ad-hoc query service that powers AWS Cost Explorer, and is accessible via a command-line interface and supported AWS SDKs. Using the AWS Cost Explorer API, you can build custom, interactive cost management applications without having to set up and maintain any additional infrastructure.
