AWS Budgets July 2019 Update

Released on July 24th, 2019

AWS Budgets Announces AWS Chatbot Integration

Starting today, you can leverage AWS Budgets’ integration with the newly released AWS Chatbot service to receive AWS Budgets alerts via Slack and Amazon Chime. To enable AWS Chatbot integration, simply configure an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic during the budget alert creation process. From there, navigate to the AWS Chatbot console and map your Amazon SNS topic to the appropriate Slack channel or Chime room. Once configured, your AWS Budgets alerts will be sent directly to the Slack channel or Chime room of your choice.

Please note that all AWS Budgets functionality can be accessed programmatically via the AWS Budgets API.

To get started using this feature, refer to the AWS Chatbot webpage. To learn about setting budgets, refer to the AWS Budgets webpage or the Receiving Budget Alerts in Amazon Chime and Slack section of the Managing Your Costs With Budgets user guide.

Introducing AWS Budgets Reports

Starting today, you can create and send daily, weekly, or monthly reports to monitor the performance of your AWS Budgets. Using the new AWS Budgets Reports console, you can easily select the subset of budgets that you would like to include in your report, define the delivery frequency, and specify your email recipients. For example, you can create a report that monitors all budgets for linked accounts belonging to a particular business unit and have that report delivered each morning to that business unit’s engineering, product, and finance leaders.

AWS Budgets gives you the ability to set custom budgets that alert you when your costs or usage exceed (or are forecasted to exceed) your budgeted amount. You can also use AWS Budgets to set reservation utilization or coverage targets and receive alerts when your metrics drop below the threshold you define. Reservation alerts support Amazon EC2, Amazon RDS, Amazon Redshift, Amazon ElastiCache, and Elasticsearch reservations.

To learn more about AWS Budgets Reports, please refer to the AWS Budgets webpage or the Managing your Costs with Budgets user guide. You can also proceed directly to the AWS Budgets Reports dashboard.
