Custom Cost Dimensions

Custom dimensions are dimensions that are specific to your organization. Today, only Resource Tag/Label-based Custom Cost Dimensions are supported.

Resource Tag/Label-based Custom Cost Dimensions

Note:The content on this page applies to the new Cloud Cost Optimization capabilities only. New customers onboarded since January 15, 2019 have access to this functionality by default. If you are a preexisting customer and would like access to the new Cloud Cost Optimization features, contact your account manager.

Any resource tags (labels in Google) in your bill data can be enabled as custom dimensions. For Google and Microsoft Azure, all resource tags/labels are available in the bill data by default. For Amazon Web Services, resource tags must be configured as user-defined cost allocation tags for them to be available in the bill and to be used as custom dimensions in Cloud Cost Optimization.

Important:The Manage custom dimensions role is required to access the Custom Tags page. For details, refer to Flexera One Roles.
