New Features

  • Showback Reporting - You can now tag your accounts using RightScale tags with meta information about ownership of the account, such as business unit, groups, departments, or any information relevant to your enterprise. Once you export your full costs from the Optima dashboard, you will see these tags along with costs, giving you a full cost showback report.

  • AWS Cloud Connection Check - In order for Optima to show you all your cloud costs, you need to have CloudWatch enabled and your IAM must give enough permissions. We now check to make sure you connection is working, and if not, provide a message on how to connect successfully.

Cloud Management

Changes in Behavior

  • Removal of Usage Estimate Report - As part of our continued effort to remove cost information from the Cloud Management Dashboard, we have removed the Usage Estimate Report feature from the dashboard with this release. The Usage Estimate option is no longer accessible from the Reports menu in the dashboard user interface. Customers are encouraged to view costing information for their accounts using RightScale Optima.
