Once a budget is created, it is important to set alerts so the relevant parties are notified if the cloud spend is approaching the budget limit.
Cloudyn enables this with 2 types of alerts:
- Percentage spent
- Remaining Cost
To create these alerts, go to the Cost vs. Budget Over Time report (Cost > Projection and Budget > Cost vs. Budget Over Time).
Select Actions in the upper right and then Schedule Report. If you go to the Threshold tab, you can then select an alert type.
