Configure AWS services
Before configuring you Splunk platform deployment to work with your AWS data, make sure that your AWS deployment is properly configured to send data.
- You must have administrator access to your AWS account. If you do not have necessary permissions, work with an AWS administrator to complete the tasks described in this manual.
If your account is in the AWS China region, the add-on only supports the services that AWS supports in that region. For an up-to-date list of what products and services are supported in this region, see AWS China Products or AWS product services.
If your account is in the AWS GovCloud region, the add-on only supports the services that AWS supports in that region. For an up-to-date list of what services and endpoints are supported in this region, see the AWS GovCloud User Guide
The Splunk App for AWS collects Billing metrics through CloudWatch and Billing Reports by collecting them from an S3 bucket.
To enable AWS to produce Billing Metrics in CloudWatch, turn on Receive Billing Alerts in the Preferences section of the Billing and Cost Management console.
To enable Billing Reports, turn on Receive Billing Reports in the Preferences section of the Billing and Cost Management console. Be sure to verify your S3 bucket in the Billing and Cost Management console and select the report types that you want to collect.
For more details on managing your AWS Billing Reports, see the Amazon Web Services documentation
