Cost Allocations & Budgeting

Apportion costs to tenants in a highly efficient and accurate manner. Allows to track and monitor the costs of specific resources and services that are consumed by tenants, making it easier to allocate costs based on actual usage.

The cost allocation feature works by using a set of predefined rules that specify how costs should be apportioned to tenants. These rules can be customized based on specific business requirements, allowing users to tailor the cost allocation process to their specific needs.

Create Cost Allocation Rules

  1. Log into the Hybr Admin portal and navigate to Reporting → Data Source → Rules page → Cost Allocation page.

  2. Click the 'Create Cost Allocation' button to create a new Cost Allocation Rule; Selected Source Cost Data with the 'Add Source' option

  1. Once configured Source Cost details with Target Tenant Subscriptions, click next to configure the Rule Name, Order and Policy as follows.

  2. The configured rules will be applied to the Cost Allocation going forward. In order to apply modified rules to the past month, the Cost Allocation needs to be reset as described below.

Tag Based Cost Allocation

As the name says, Cost allocation can be applied as per the tag value from cost export records. Hybr supports 100% allocation to the Hybr subscription, if it is added as a tag value for any resources. This is applicable only if there is either no rules added or doesn't match under any configured rules. It is supported for the following Cloud platforms.


For Tag based cost allocation, tag values have to be added for the resources as follows.
