6.3.2 Reporting
Chargeback can generate cost, usage, and comparison reports for hierarchies and entities. Match the entity or hierarchy with the appropriate cost model when generating reports.
The Chargeback API can export reports to XML. Developers can use XSLT to transform the raw XML into a format supported by the customer’s billing system. Reports run from the Chargeback user interface are available in PDF and XLS format. Create service accounts with read-only privileges to run reports from the UI or Chargeback API.
