I am using Quicksight Enterprise version with Paginated report! I want to know the in details costing of the Quicksight service. Like which Resources is taking more cost or which user’s AUTHOR or READER mode is costing a lot of penny!
As per AWS we need to add Tags on the services to know the costing of each and everything in detail, but in case of quicksight resources we dont see an option to add any kind of tags! please suggest, this is really needed when we want to know the costing in detail to maintain a balance
You can use CloudTrail to see the dashboards that each user has viewed and then calculate an estimate of their usage cost based on that. I say “estimate” because it looks like CloudTrail tracks each view of a dashboard instead of sessions but billing is based on sessions.
This article shows how to use CloudTrail logs to create a dashboard.
You can use the same idea to create your own Usage dashboard to calculate an approximate usage cost per user. We use this method to calculate usage cost per user and per customer for our SaaS application. I don’t know if there’s a way to get more accurate numbers.
