About Insights: cost analytics
HPE OneSphere allows you to collect data on costs associated with your public and private provider accounts, and display them as an interactive dashboard view, or as downloadable reports. Both the dashboard view and the reports option allow you to configure data from multiple categories, including provider type, account information, region, date range, and more. Currently, HPE OneSphere only shows costs/rates in US Dollars ($).
The current Insights feature in HPE OneSphere replaces an older version of Insights. The new Insights feature contains many additional customizable options, and downloadable reports.
For Amazon Web Services (AWS), the cost includes all payer accounts that you connected to HPE OneSphere as Public Billing Accounts, and any member accounts associated with those payer accounts in AWS. Cost information for these member accounts will appear in Insights whether or not you have connected those member accounts to HPE OneSphere.
For Microsoft Azure, the cost includes all enterprise accounts that you connected to HPE OneSphere as Public Billing Accounts, and any subscription accounts connected to those enterprise accounts in Azure. Cost information for these subscription accounts will appear in Insights whether or not you have connected those subscription accounts to HPE OneSphere.
For private cloud providers, the cost represents actual usage costs for the vCPU, memory, and disk usage rates defined per private cloud provider/zone.
Only HPE OneSphere Administrators and Analysts have permission to access cost analytics information. HPE OneSphere users with the Project Creator and Consumer roles will not see Insights on their main menu. However, Consumer's will still be able to see costs associated with the particular project they are assigned to.
When you first click Insights, the System Default Dashboard view is displayed. Click Reports in the banner at the top of the screen to see the Reports screen.
After a custom dashboard view or a report is saved, it will be visible by other administrators and analysts with accounts in your HPE OneSphere management service.
