These release notes apply to the Splunk App for AWS version 5.2.0.
For compatibility information, see Hardware and software requirements for the Splunk App for AWS.
|New feature or enhancement||Description|
|AWS Cost and Usage Reports (CUR) for billing data||The Splunk App for AWS supports AWS CUR to analyze billing data for your AWS account.
If you do not have access to CUR, you can continue using Detailed Billing Reports (DBR) to monitor billing data.
When you set up a CUR input and start populating billing dashboards with CUR data, you can disable DBR inputs from the Splunk Add-on for Amazon Web Services. When you start populating billing dashboards with CUR data, the app no longer uses DBR data. If you want to view DBR data again, switch the billing report type.
To start monitoring CUR data in the Splunk App for AWS, see Specify the type of AWS billing data to monitor.
|New knowledge objects||The new knowledge objects support AWS CUR to analyze billing data for your AWS account.
