Billing Source Reports


Billing Source 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 a billing source, navigate to Accounts > Billing Sources, click on the billing source, and select Spend Reports.

Financial Summary

The financial summary provides an in-depth look into spend for all billing sources. 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 spend plan for the report resource.

Spend Reports

Spend reports allows you view a visual summary and report broken down by month for your billing source spending. You can also export the report results.

You can select to generate a report including a single billing source, multiple billing sources, or all billing sources.

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.


Some types of spend reports allow you to drill down even further into your data. On these reports, within the Spending by Service or  Spending by Tag table, you can click on each amount to further drill down on spending for each month 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 spending within a service or tag's monthly 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.

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. Unified tagging means that when you use the same tags across providers, Kion will report on them as if they came from one unified source, so your reports give you totals for the tag instead of fragmented results. Note that you can report on tags starting with the date of their creation, and tags are case sensitive (the case must match across cloud providers).
