Problem statement

Though I can pull AWS costs by selecting AWS account, I can’t refine by using category of tags called “cost allocation tags”


In perspectives we have a filter Group By Under AWS, we can Group by Service, Account, Region etc one of them is Tags Each tag that you assign to your AWS resources. You can select a Tag name to get further granular details of your tags.l. You won’t be able to filter by Label unitl you activate the user-defined cost allocation tags in the AWS Billing and Cost Management console
