Adding Bill Adjustments

Important:To add bill adjustments, you must have the Manage organization or Manage bill adjustments role. For complete descriptions of each role available in Flexera One, see Flexera One Roles.

You can add bill adjustments in an adjustment list within Cloud Cost Optimization on the Adjustment Program page.

To add bill adjustments:

1. Go to the Adjustment Program page (Cloud > Cost Optimization > Adjustment Program).
2. From the Dated Adjustment Lists, select the adjustment list in which you want to add the bill adjustment or create an adjustment list in which you want to add the adjustment. For information on how to create an adjustment list, see Creating Bill Adjustment Lists.

Note:You can add only five adjustments in an adjustment list. If an adjustment list already has five adjustments, the Add Adjustment button appears dimmed and is not available.

3. Click Add Adjustment. The Adjustment slideout opens.
4. In the Adjustment name box, enter a name for the billing adjustment.
5. Click Save.

Note:Consider the following:

If an adjustment already exists in a dated adjustment list and you add another adjustment, then after you click Save, two additional options—Build on raw costs and Build on Adjustmentsappear on the page on which you can build this adjustment.
If two or more adjustments already exist, then these additional options appear directly on the Adjustment page when you click Add Adjustment.
6. Optionally, for any adjustments you add after the first adjustment, choose between building on raw costs or building on existing adjustments. Otherwise, skip to the next step to add rules to the adjustment. 
Build on raw costs—You can build this adjustment on the cost directly shared by the cloud provider. By default, the adjustment builds on raw cost.
Build on Adjustments—You can build this adjustment on another adjustment if you need to compound the cost on another cost. From the Select adjustment to build off dropdown list, select the checkbox next to the previously created adjustment on which you want to build this adjustment.
7. To add a rule to an adjustment, click Add Rule. The Rule slideout opens.

Note:An adjustment can contain up to 100 rules. The rules are evaluated in the order they are listed.

8. In the Label box, enter a name for the rule that you want to apply.
9. To add a condition to a rule, click Add a new Condition. The Add a new Condition pop-up window opens.
a. From the Condition dropdown list, select a condition. The available conditions are:
Dimension Equals—Checks whether a dimension equals a certain value.
Allocated to Billing Center—Checks whether a billing center equals a certain billing center ID.
All—Checks whether all the child conditions are true for this condition to be true.
Any—Checks whether any of the child conditions are true for this condition to be true.
Not—Checks whether all the child conditions are false for this condition to be true.
b. If you select the Boolean operator (All, Any, or Not), the Condition to go inside dropdown list appears. Select the appropriate child condition to go inside this condition.

Note:You can use these Boolean operators to build more complex nested expressions.

c. Click Add Condition.
10. If you add a condition, enter a value for the dimension or billing center ID.

Note:When creating an expression with Boolean operators such as All and Any, you can copy an expression and negate an expression using the Copy this Expression and Negate this Expression icons, respectively.

11. In the Cost Multiplier box, enter a value. The adjustment value will be the base cost multiplied by this value.

Note:You can enter a negative value (by using the minus sign) in the Cost Multiplier field to remove certain spend details from the cost. For example, if you select the dimension as Line Item Type and enter the value as Tax, and then enter -1 in the Cost Multiplier field, the entire tax details are removed from the spend details.

12. Click Save to save the rule.
13. Click Close to close the Rule slideout.

Note:You can edit and delete a rule by clicking the Edit rule and Delete rule icons, respectively. To change the priority of a rule, you can move the rule up and down in the list.

14. Click Update to add the billing adjustment.
