Billing Center Hierarchies

Important:To create sub-billing centers and to modify their allocation rules, you must have the Manage billing centers or billing_center_admin role. For more information, refer to Managing Billing Center Access.

Billing centers can be configured in a hierarchical structure so that the cost reporting functionality in Cloud Cost Optimization can better match the reporting structure of your organization. Costs are allocated down the hierarchy, with each level providing additional splitting of costs into constituent buckets. Billing centers at every level of the hierarchy have much the same set of functionality, including custom cost reporting and user access controls.

Important:Sub-billing centers do not yet support scheduled reports, budget alerts, or recommendations. This functionality is coming soon.

Use hierarchical billing centers to break down your costs into the pieces small enough so that any cloud consumer in your organization can see the costs that are relevant to them.

There are no limits to the number of levels in the billing center hierarchy.
