Install the app

Now that you have set up a log collection, you can install the Sumo Logic AWS Cost Explorer App and use its pre-configured dashboards.

  1. Download AWS_Cost_Explorer.json (https://s3.amazonaws.com/app.scripts/AWS_Cost_Explorer.json).
  2. Import into the Sumo Logic Library folder of your choice.
  3. Once an app json is imported, it will appear in your Personal folder, or other folder that you specified. From here, you can share it with your organization. 

Panels will start to fill automatically. It's important to note that each panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results won't immediately be available, but with a bit of time, you'll see full graphs and maps.
