OU Reports


OU Reports

You can generate system-wide reports by navigating to Reporting in the left navigation menu.

You can also view reports on individual resources by selecting the appropriate tabs on their details page. For example, to view the spend report for an OU, navigate to OUs > All OUs, click on the OU, select Financials, and click Spend Reports.

Financial Summary

The financial summary provides an in-depth look into spend for all OUs and projects under the selected OU. The row-level data is exported as a zipped collection of spreadsheet files that are easy to import into other tracking systems as needed. The report can include data on the monthly spend, payments, spend by service, and budgets for the selected resource.

Spend Reports

Spend reports help you easily analyze your spending by month in a variety of ways.

You can select to generate a report including a single OU, multiple OUs, or all OUs. You can also export the report results.

Click Add Filter to use tags and labels to filter your report. You can specify if you want the results to include or exclude each tag/label, the tag/label key, and the tag/label values. You can add as many filters as you want and use a combination of tags and labels in the same report. Label filters apply to any child resources included in the report as well.

At the top of the spend report, you'll find a color-coded graph with spending for your selected resources. You can click on the individual bars in the chart to drill down on spending for a month or see the tables below for more details.

Project and OU spend reports can be shared by copying the URL after a report is generated. When another user with the appropriate permissions visits the URL, a report will open with all of the same parameters, including applied filters.


Reports with the Spending by Service or Spending by Tag table allow you to drill down even further into your data. On these reports, click on each amount for monthly spending details for that service or tag. Within that month's view, you'll find a Usage Summary tab and a Resource Data tab, which provide more granular breakdowns of spend.

The Usage Summary details the usage type, amount spent, and the number of resources used.

The Resource Data tab details the accounts that used the resource, the resource ID, usage type, and the cost. It also allows direct access to your cloud provider (CP) via the Account Access button for those who have permission to access the listed accounts.

The spend by resource report exports your results to a .csv or .xlsx file, instead of displaying them in Kion. When you select spend by resource and click Export, a zip containing the file type you selected is downloaded. If you choose .csv, there will be a file for each month in your selected date range. If you choose .xlsx, there will be one file with a tab for each month. AWS and Azure are separated into their own reports. We do not currently support spend by resource for Google Cloud projects.

Unified Tagging

Kion supports reporting on tags within AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. If you're using more than one of these cloud providers, you can take advantage of Kion's unified tagging. For more information, see Reporting with Tags.

Child Spend Summary

The child spend summary includes a breakdown of spending by accounts in the selected OU's descendant OUs and projects. The report is exported as a .CSV file.

Cloud Access Report

The cloud access report includes the user names, user groups, OU hierarchy, project names, and cloud access roles associated with an OU. The report is exported as a .CSV file.

Financial Drilldown

The financial drilldown includes data on current spend, planned spend, aggregate spend, aggregate planned spend, allocations, and OU hierarchy for all OUs and projects under a selected OU. The report is exported as a .CSV file.

Accounts Under OU

The accounts under OU report includes data on all accounts descendant from the selected OU. The report is exported as a .CSV file.
