AWS Troubleshooting

You are here:

The Billing section is empty when I generate an AWS Document.

  • Billing is based on Cost Explorer so you need to make sure Cost Explorer is activated
  • Once you ensure that Cost Explorer is activated, you need to ensure the user you are using to log in has access to Cost Explorer. Typically, if you use the Read Only role, it does not have access to Cost Explorer. If you want to only add Cost Explorer permissions, you can create a policy as follows and add it to the Read Only user:

"Version": "2012-10-17",

"Statement": [


"Effect": "Allow",

"Action": [



"Resource": [
