Hi Team, I'm new to CDP and am currently looking at myaccount page "CDP Public Cloud Usage summary" staring to get a feel for the CDP product, but wanted to know if anyone has had experience in Billing and Metering of CDP subscriptions.
I'd like to know if it is at all possible to create rules around subscription spend eg. If estimated cost went above $20, can an alert generated advising me of this.
Also is there any other info that might help with managing cost that this team might know about, that might be useful? Thanks
CDP does provide cost management tools and features that can help you track and manage your usage and expenses. In terms of creating rules around subscription spend, you can use the "Budgets" feature in CDP to set up cost limits and receive alerts when those limits are exceeded. This can be helpful in ensuring that your costs don't exceed a certain threshold.
To create a budget in CDP, you can follow these steps:
Navigate to the "Budgets" page in the CDP console
Click "Create budget"
Choose the subscription(s) that you want the budget to apply to
Set the budget amount and timeframe (e.g. monthly, quarterly, or annually)
Choose the email address(es) that should receive alerts when the budget is exceeded
Once you've set up a budget, you'll receive an email alert if your estimated spend for the selected subscription(s) exceeds the budget amount that you set.
