CID CUDOS and the KPI Dashboards

The Cost Intelligence Dashboard (CID), CUDOS, and the KPI dashboard are all strongly recommended to be deployed together. These three dashboards are based on the Cost & Usage report and will help you address a wide range of FinOps use cases. The following steps will help you deploy all three dashboards into your account. If you just want to deploy one or two of these dashboards instead, please review the manual deployment section.

Option 1: Express Deployment (15 minutes)

The following is the recommended method for deploying the CUR-based Cloud Intelligence Dashboards (CID, CUDOS, and KPI). This step requires that you’ve gone through the prerequisites in the previous steps in this lab to; create the CUR, setup Athena and its connection to the CUR, and enabled QuickSight.

Option 4: Manual Deployment (deprecated)

This option is the manual deployment and will walk you through all steps required to create this dashboard without any automation. We recommend this option users new to Athena and QuickSight.

You will require AWS CLI environment. We recommend using CloudShell in your account, but you also can install AWS CLI on your working environment.
