Getting Information About Your Resource Consumption

You can get information about your resource consumption. Note however that the details about your resources are provided for information purposes only. Only invoices are considered binding.

In terms of governance, it can be a best practice to delegate the reading of your consumption to an EIM user. For more information, see Tutorial: Getting Your Consumption Using an EIM User.

Getting Information About Your Resource Consumption Using OSC CLI

The ReadConsumptionAccount command gets information about the consumption of your account for each billable resource within the specified time period.

Request sample
$ osc-cli api ReadConsumptionAccount --profile "default" \
    --FromDate "2023-06-01" \
    --ToDate "2023-07-01" \
    --ShowPrice True

This command contains the following attributes that you need to specify:

  • DryRun: (optional) If true, checks whether you have the required permissions to perform the action.

  • FromDate: The beginning of the time period, in ISO 8601 date format (for example, 2020-06-14). The date-time format is also accepted, but only with a time set to midnight (for example, 2020-06-14T00:00:00.000Z). This value is included in the time period.

  • Overall: (optional) By default or if false, returns only the consumption of the specific account that sends this request. If true, returns either the overall consumption of your paying account and all linked accounts (if the account that sends this request is a paying account) or returns nothing (if the account that sends this request is a linked account).

  • ShowPrice: (optional) If true, the response also includes the unit price of the consumed resource (UnitPrice) and the total price of the consumed resource during the specified time period (Price), in the currency of your account.

  • ToDate: The end of the time period, in ISO 8601 date format (for example, 2020-06-30). The date-time format is also accepted, but only with a time set to midnight (for example, 2020-06-30T00:00:00.000Z). This value is excluded from the time period, and must be set to a later date than FromDate.
