Setup cost-centers and attribute costs to specific billing profiles
You can configure how you would like to be billed for your cloud assets managed by DoiT International using the Cloud Management Platform. For example, you might want to split your Production related accounts to be billed separately from R&D accounts.
Required Permissions: Billing Profile Admin
Please note that you must be assigned access to the specific billing profile under which the domain is managed in order to purchase a license.
From the main CMP dashboard, find the Billing Profiles widget, then select the edit icon next to the billing profile you would like to update:

From the billing profile screen, select Invoice Settings from the left-hand menu:

As a customer, you have two options for each one of your billing profiles:
Separate the invoice by asset type — individual invoices for each of your products. If you have four asset types (e.g., G Suite, Google Cloud, AWS, and Office 365), you will have four invoices.
Invoice using custom bucketing — buckets allow you to combine assets into a group. If you have 16 assets and group them into two buckets, then two invoices will be generated, with eight assets per invoice.

You can create as many buckets as you want and separate your assets into those buckets.
You must set one bucket as the default. Any asset that isn't assigned to a specific bucket will be automatically placed in the default bucket.
You can revert back to separating your invoices by asset type if the custom bucketing method isn't suitable for you anymore.
