Problem Statement

We are not able to get cost of AWS snapshots in dashboard the cost appears to be nill.


In the AWS Cost and Usage Report (CUR), the costs associated with EBS snapshots are typically billed based on the volume ID rather than the snapshot ID. This is because EBS snapshots are essentially point-in-time backups of EBS volumes, and the cost of creating and storing the snapshot is directly related to the size of the EBS volume it was created from.

So basically if you add a column with accountid, region and snapshot id you won’t get any result, but if you add a column with account id , region and volume id you will get the cost details.
