The Cost & Usage Report gives you access to a comprehensive dataset of cost and usage information. You can use this data dictionary to deepen your understanding of the various categories of information in the Cost & Usage Report.

You can use the resource columns to find information about the specific resources covered by a line item. These columns include user-defined cost allocation tags. Examples include the following:
