Settings in the AWS account related to the AWS Cost sensor

Define the following settings in your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account before setting up the AWS Cost sensor:

Step 1: Enable the AWS Cost Explorer API

The sensor requires the AWS Cost Explorer to be enabled in the AWS account. For more information, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/awsaccountbilling/latest/aboutv2/ce-enable.html.

Note: After sensor setup, the first data is available after 24 hours. Forecast data is available after a few days.

Step 2: Set permissions for the AWS API key

The AWS Cost sensor queries data from the AWS Cost Explorer API. Therefore, it needs sufficient permissions for the API key. For more information on how to set the required permissions, see How do I set permissions for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) API key to use certain sensors in PRTG?
