Once your billing data is connected to RightScale, any tags configured in the Optima Billing CenterAllocation Rules must be native cloud tags (not RightScale tags) and must be present in the cloud bill. When using tag-based allocation, some vendors require additional configuration:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) - Configure User-Defined Cost Allocation Tags
Azure - No additional configuration is required. All tags exist in data sources.
Google - tags are known as “label(s)” in Google Cloud Platform. Tag/Label-based allocation rules are supported in Optima.
