Client

class CostExplorer.Client

A low-level client representing AWS Cost Explorer Service:

import boto3

client = boto3.client('ce')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
generate_presigned_url(ClientMethod, Params=None, ExpiresIn=3600, HttpMethod=None)

Generate a presigned url given a client, its method, and arguments

Parameters
  • ClientMethod (string) -- The client method to presign for
  • Params (dict) -- The parameters normally passed to ClientMethod.
  • ExpiresIn (int) -- The number of seconds the presigned url is valid for. By default it expires in an hour (3600 seconds)
  • HttpMethod (string) -- The http method to use on the generated url. By default, the http method is whatever is used in the method's model.
Returns

The presigned url

get_cost_and_usage(**kwargs)

Retrieves cost and usage metrics for your account. You can specify which cost and usage-related metric, such as BlendedCosts or UsageQuantity , that you want the request to return. You can also filter and group your data by various dimensions, such as SERVICE or AZ , in a specific time range. For a complete list of valid dimensions, see the `` GetDimensionValues `` operation. Master accounts in an organization in AWS Organizations have access to all member accounts.

Parameters
  • TimePeriod (dict) --

    Sets the start and end dates for retrieving AWS costs. The start date is inclusive, but the end date is exclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 and end is 2017-05-01 , then the cost and usage data is retrieved from 2017-01-01 up to and including 2017-04-30 but not including 2017-05-01 .

    • Start (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      The beginning of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The start date is inclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 , AWS retrieves cost and usage data starting at 2017-01-01 up to the end date.

    • End (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      The end of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The end date is exclusive. For example, if end is 2017-05-01 , AWS retrieves cost and usage data from the start date up to, but not including, 2017-05-01 .

  • Granularity (string) -- Sets the AWS cost granularity to MONTHLY or DAILY . If Granularity isn't set, the response object doesn't include the Granularity , either MONTHLY or DAILY .
  • Filter (dict) --

    Filters AWS costs by different dimensions. For example, you can specify SERVICE and LINKED_ACCOUNT and get the costs that are associated with that account's usage of that service. You can nest Expression objects to define any combination of dimension filters. For more information, see Expression .

    • Or (list) --

      Return results that match either Dimension object.

      • (dict) --

        Use Expression to filter by cost or by usage. There are two patterns:

        • Simple dimension values - You can set the dimension name and values for the filters that you plan to use. For example, you can filter for INSTANCE_TYPE==m4.xlarge OR INSTANCE_TYPE==c4.large . The Expression for that looks like this: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.xlarge", “c4.large” ] } } The list of dimension values are OR'd together to retrieve cost or usage data. You can create Expression and DimensionValues objects using either with* methods or set* methods in multiple lines.
        • Compound dimension values with logical operations - You can use multiple Expression types and the logical operators AND/OR/NOT to create a list of one or more Expression objects. This allows you to filter on more advanced options. For example, you can filter on ((INSTANCE_TYPE == m4.large OR INSTANCE_TYPE == m3.large) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer) . The Expression for that looks like this: { "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.x.large", "c4.large" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

        Note

        Because each Expression can have only one operator, the service returns an error if more than one is specified. The following example shows an Expression object that creates an error.

        { "And": [ ... ], "DimensionValues": { "Dimension": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

    • And (list) --

      Return results that match both Dimension objects.

      • (dict) --

        Use Expression to filter by cost or by usage. There are two patterns:

        • Simple dimension values - You can set the dimension name and values for the filters that you plan to use. For example, you can filter for INSTANCE_TYPE==m4.xlarge OR INSTANCE_TYPE==c4.large . The Expression for that looks like this: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.xlarge", “c4.large” ] } } The list of dimension values are OR'd together to retrieve cost or usage data. You can create Expression and DimensionValues objects using either with* methods or set* methods in multiple lines.
        • Compound dimension values with logical operations - You can use multiple Expression types and the logical operators AND/OR/NOT to create a list of one or more Expression objects. This allows you to filter on more advanced options. For example, you can filter on ((INSTANCE_TYPE == m4.large OR INSTANCE_TYPE == m3.large) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer) . The Expression for that looks like this: { "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.x.large", "c4.large" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

        Note

        Because each Expression can have only one operator, the service returns an error if more than one is specified. The following example shows an Expression object that creates an error.

        { "And": [ ... ], "DimensionValues": { "Dimension": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

    • Not (dict) --

      Return results that don't match a Dimension object.

    • Dimensions (dict) --

      The specific Dimension to use for Expression .

      • Key (string) --

        The names of the metadata types that you can use to filter and group your results. For example, AZ returns a list of Availability Zones.

      • Values (list) --

        The metadata values that you can use to filter and group your results. You can use GetDimensionValues to find specific values.

        • (string) --
    • Tags (dict) --

      The specific Tag to use for Expression .

      • Key (string) --

        The key for a tag.

      • Values (list) --

        The specific value of a tag.

        • (string) --
  • Metrics (list) --

    Which metrics are returned in the query. For more information about blended and unblended rates, see Why does the "blended" annotation appear on some line items in my bill? .

    Valid values are BlendedCost , UnblendedCost , and UsageQuantity .

    Note

    If you return the UsageQuantity metric, the service aggregates all usage numbers without taking into account the units. For example, if you aggregate usageQuantity across all of EC2, the results aren't meaningful because EC2 compute hours and data transfer are measured in different units (for example, hours vs. GB). To get more meaningful UsageQuantity metrics, filter by UsageType or UsageTypeGroups .

    Metrics is required for GetCostAndUsage requests.

    • (string) --
  • GroupBy (list) --

    You can group AWS costs using up to two different groups, either dimensions, tag keys, or both.

    When you group by tag key, you get all tag values, including empty strings.

    Valid values are AZ , INSTANCE_TYPE , LEGAL_ENTITY_NAME , LINKED_ACCOUNT , OPERATION , PLATFORM , PURCHASE_TYPE , SERVICE , TAGS , TENANCY , and USAGE_TYPE .

    • (dict) --

      Represents a group when you specify a group by criteria, or in the response to a query with a specific grouping.

      • Type (string) --

        The string that represents the type of group.

      • Key (string) --

        The string that represents a key for a specified group.

  • NextPageToken (string) -- The token to retrieve the next set of results. AWS provides the token when the response from a previous call has more results than the maximum page size.

get_paginator(operation_name)

Create a paginator for an operation.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Raises OperationNotPageableError
Raised if the operation is not pageable. You can use the client.can_paginate method to check if an operation is pageable.
Return type
L{botocore.paginate.Paginator}
Returns
A paginator object.
get_reservation_coverage(**kwargs)

Retrieves the reservation coverage for your account. This allows you to see how much of your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Amazon ElastiCache, Amazon Relational Database Service, or Amazon Redshift usage is covered by a reservation. An organization's master account can see the coverage of the associated member accounts. For any time period, you can filter data about reservation usage by the following dimensions:

  • AZ
  • CACHE_ENGINE
  • DATABASE_ENGINE
  • DEPLOYMENT_OPTION
  • INSTANCE_TYPE
  • LINKED_ACCOUNT
  • OPERATING_SYSTEM
  • PLATFORM

Parameters
  • TimePeriod (dict) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The start and end dates of the period for which you want to retrieve data about reservation coverage. You can retrieve data for a maximum of 13 months: the last 12 months and the current month. The start date is inclusive, but the end date is exclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 and end is 2017-05-01 , then the cost and usage data is retrieved from 2017-01-01 up to and including 2017-04-30 but not including 2017-05-01 .

    • Start (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      The beginning of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The start date is inclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 , AWS retrieves cost and usage data starting at 2017-01-01 up to the end date.

    • End (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      The end of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The end date is exclusive. For example, if end is 2017-05-01 , AWS retrieves cost and usage data from the start date up to, but not including, 2017-05-01 .

  • GroupBy (list) --

    You can group the data by the following attributes:

    • AZ
    • CACHE_ENGINE
    • DATABASE_ENGINE
    • DEPLOYMENT_OPTION
    • INSTANCE_TYPE
    • LINKED_ACCOUNT
    • OPERATING_SYSTEM
    • PLATFORM
    • REGION
    • TAG
    • TENANCY
    • (dict) --

      Represents a group when you specify a group by criteria, or in the response to a query with a specific grouping.

      • Type (string) --

        The string that represents the type of group.

      • Key (string) --

        The string that represents a key for a specified group.

  • Granularity (string) --

    The granularity of the AWS cost data for the reservation. Valid values are MONTHLY and DAILY .

    If GroupBy is set, Granularity can't be set. If Granularity isn't set, the response object doesn't include Granularity , either MONTHLY or DAILY .

  • Filter (dict) --

    Filters utilization data by dimensions. You can filter by the following dimensions:

    • AZ
    • CACHE_ENGINE
    • DATABASE_ENGINE
    • DEPLOYMENT_OPTION
    • INSTANCE_TYPE
    • LINKED_ACCOUNT
    • OPERATING_SYSTEM
    • PLATFORM
    • REGION
    • SERVICE
    • TAG
    • TENANCY
    GetReservationCoverage uses the same `` Expression `` object as the other operations, but only AND is supported among each dimension. You can nest only one level deep. If there are multiple values for a dimension, they are OR'd together.
    • Or (list) --

      Return results that match either Dimension object.

      • (dict) --

        Use Expression to filter by cost or by usage. There are two patterns:

        • Simple dimension values - You can set the dimension name and values for the filters that you plan to use. For example, you can filter for INSTANCE_TYPE==m4.xlarge OR INSTANCE_TYPE==c4.large . The Expression for that looks like this: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.xlarge", “c4.large” ] } } The list of dimension values are OR'd together to retrieve cost or usage data. You can create Expression and DimensionValues objects using either with* methods or set* methods in multiple lines.
        • Compound dimension values with logical operations - You can use multiple Expression types and the logical operators AND/OR/NOT to create a list of one or more Expression objects. This allows you to filter on more advanced options. For example, you can filter on ((INSTANCE_TYPE == m4.large OR INSTANCE_TYPE == m3.large) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer) . The Expression for that looks like this: { "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.x.large", "c4.large" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

        Note

        Because each Expression can have only one operator, the service returns an error if more than one is specified. The following example shows an Expression object that creates an error.

        { "And": [ ... ], "DimensionValues": { "Dimension": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

    • And (list) --

      Return results that match both Dimension objects.

      • (dict) --

        Use Expression to filter by cost or by usage. There are two patterns:

        • Simple dimension values - You can set the dimension name and values for the filters that you plan to use. For example, you can filter for INSTANCE_TYPE==m4.xlarge OR INSTANCE_TYPE==c4.large . The Expression for that looks like this: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.xlarge", “c4.large” ] } } The list of dimension values are OR'd together to retrieve cost or usage data. You can create Expression and DimensionValues objects using either with* methods or set* methods in multiple lines.
        • Compound dimension values with logical operations - You can use multiple Expression types and the logical operators AND/OR/NOT to create a list of one or more Expression objects. This allows you to filter on more advanced options. For example, you can filter on ((INSTANCE_TYPE == m4.large OR INSTANCE_TYPE == m3.large) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer) . The Expression for that looks like this: { "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.x.large", "c4.large" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

        Note

        Because each Expression can have only one operator, the service returns an error if more than one is specified. The following example shows an Expression object that creates an error.

        { "And": [ ... ], "DimensionValues": { "Dimension": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

    • Not (dict) --

      Return results that don't match a Dimension object.

    • Dimensions (dict) --

      The specific Dimension to use for Expression .

      • Key (string) --

        The names of the metadata types that you can use to filter and group your results. For example, AZ returns a list of Availability Zones.

      • Values (list) --

        The metadata values that you can use to filter and group your results. You can use GetDimensionValues to find specific values.

        • (string) --
    • Tags (dict) --

      The specific Tag to use for Expression .

      • Key (string) --

        The key for a tag.

      • Values (list) --

        The specific value of a tag.

        • (string) --

get_reservation_purchase_recommendation(**kwargs)

Gets recommendations for which reservations to purchase. These recommendations could help you reduce your costs. Reservations provide a discounted hourly rate (up to 75%) compared to On-Demand pricing.

AWS generates your recommendations by identifying your On-Demand usage during a specific time period and collecting your usage into categories that are eligible for a reservation. After AWS has these categories, it simulates every combination of reservations in each category of usage to identify the best number of each type of RI to purchase to maximize your estimated savings.

For example, AWS automatically aggregates your EC2 Linux, shared tenancy, and c4 family usage in the US West (Oregon) Region and recommends that you buy size-flexible regional reservations to apply to the c4 family usage. AWS recommends the smallest size instance in an instance family. This makes it easier to purchase a size-flexible RI. AWS also shows the equal number of normalized units so that you can purchase any instance size that you want. For this example, your RI recommendation would be for c4.large , because that is the smallest size instance in the c4 instance family.

Parameters
  • TimePeriod (dict) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Sets the start and end dates for retrieving Reserved Instance (RI) utilization. The start date is inclusive, but the end date is exclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 and end is 2017-05-01 , then the cost and usage data is retrieved from 2017-01-01 up to and including 2017-04-30 but not including 2017-05-01 .

    • Start (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      The beginning of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The start date is inclusive. For example, if start is 2017-01-01 , AWS retrieves cost and usage data starting at 2017-01-01 up to the end date.

    • End (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      The end of the time period that you want the usage and costs for. The end date is exclusive. For example, if end is 2017-05-01 , AWS retrieves cost and usage data from the start date up to, but not including, 2017-05-01 .

  • GroupBy (list) --

    Groups only by SUBSCRIPTION_ID . Metadata is included.

    • (dict) --

      Represents a group when you specify a group by criteria, or in the response to a query with a specific grouping.

      • Type (string) --

        The string that represents the type of group.

      • Key (string) --

        The string that represents a key for a specified group.

  • Granularity (string) -- If GroupBy is set, Granularity can't be set. If Granularity isn't set, the response object doesn't include Granularity , either MONTHLY or DAILY . If both GroupBy and Granularity aren't set, GetReservationUtilization defaults to DAILY .
  • Filter (dict) --

    Filters utilization data by dimensions. You can filter by the following dimensions:

    • AZ
    • CACHE_ENGINE
    • DATABASE_ENGINE
    • DEPLOYMENT_OPTION
    • INSTANCE_TYPE
    • LINKED_ACCOUNT
    • OPERATING_SYSTEM
    • PLATFORM
    • REGION
    • SERVICE
    • SCOPE
    • TENANCY
    GetReservationUtilization uses the same `` Expression `` object as the other operations, but only AND is supported among each dimension, and nesting is supported up to only one level deep. If there are multiple values for a dimension, they are OR'd together.
    • Or (list) --

      Return results that match either Dimension object.

      • (dict) --

        Use Expression to filter by cost or by usage. There are two patterns:

        • Simple dimension values - You can set the dimension name and values for the filters that you plan to use. For example, you can filter for INSTANCE_TYPE==m4.xlarge OR INSTANCE_TYPE==c4.large . The Expression for that looks like this: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.xlarge", “c4.large” ] } } The list of dimension values are OR'd together to retrieve cost or usage data. You can create Expression and DimensionValues objects using either with* methods or set* methods in multiple lines.
        • Compound dimension values with logical operations - You can use multiple Expression types and the logical operators AND/OR/NOT to create a list of one or more Expression objects. This allows you to filter on more advanced options. For example, you can filter on ((INSTANCE_TYPE == m4.large OR INSTANCE_TYPE == m3.large) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer) . The Expression for that looks like this: { "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.x.large", "c4.large" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

        Note

        Because each Expression can have only one operator, the service returns an error if more than one is specified. The following example shows an Expression object that creates an error.

        { "And": [ ... ], "DimensionValues": { "Dimension": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

    • And (list) --

      Return results that match both Dimension objects.

      • (dict) --

        Use Expression to filter by cost or by usage. There are two patterns:

        • Simple dimension values - You can set the dimension name and values for the filters that you plan to use. For example, you can filter for INSTANCE_TYPE==m4.xlarge OR INSTANCE_TYPE==c4.large . The Expression for that looks like this: { "Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.xlarge", “c4.large” ] } } The list of dimension values are OR'd together to retrieve cost or usage data. You can create Expression and DimensionValues objects using either with* methods or set* methods in multiple lines.
        • Compound dimension values with logical operations - You can use multiple Expression types and the logical operators AND/OR/NOT to create a list of one or more Expression objects. This allows you to filter on more advanced options. For example, you can filter on ((INSTANCE_TYPE == m4.large OR INSTANCE_TYPE == m3.large) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer) . The Expression for that looks like this: { "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "INSTANCE_TYPE", "Values": [ "m4.x.large", "c4.large" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

        Note

        Because each Expression can have only one operator, the service returns an error if more than one is specified. The following example shows an Expression object that creates an error.

        { "And": [ ... ], "DimensionValues": { "Dimension": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

    • Not (dict) --

      Return results that don't match a Dimension object.

    • Dimensions (dict) --

      The specific Dimension to use for Expression .

      • Key (string) --

        The names of the metadata types that you can use to filter and group your results. For example, AZ returns a list of Availability Zones.

      • Values (list) --

        The metadata values that you can use to filter and group your results. You can use GetDimensionValues to find specific values.

        • (string) --
    • Tags (dict) --

      The specific Tag to use for Expression .

      • Key (string) --

        The key for a tag.

      • Values (list) --

        The specific value of a tag.

        • (string) --
  • NextPageToken (string) -- The token to retrieve the next set of results. AWS provides the token when the response from a previous call has more results than the maximum page size.
