  • To make it easier to manage and act on cost savings recommendations, you can now filter and sort recommendations by the generation date. This gives you the ability to focus on a smaller subset of recommendations and create a prioritized action plan. You can see all recommendations or select the month you wish to see the recommendations from along with the ability to sort your view by recommendation's Generation date.

Changes in Behavior

  • Better support for all types of AWS Reserved Instances with accurate utilization information under the new Reserved Instances page. To fetch this information, an additional stanza needs to be added to the RightScale's IAM policy on your AWS parent account. You can find the complete policy details here. You need to have ca_user role at the organization level in RightScale to access this information. Learn more here
