The Favourites screen lists the Deployments and Resources which the logged in user has marked for tracking.
For each Deployment or Resource within Analytics, a star appears in its title. Click the star to toggle the Favourite status for the entity.
The Exchange Rates screen displays a list of currencies and how they have tracked over a period of 50 days against the US Dollar. Depending on the Cloud provider, organisation can be charged in different currencies, and currency fluctuations can have a significant impact on monthly invoices.
The changing rate of the US Dollar against the local currency may cause invoices to vary greatly on a month to month basis, hence exchange rate trends are important when tracking and understanding fluctuations in Cloud spend.
Hovering over the Rate History graph provides a point-in-time currency value for the selected date.
The Instance Pricing screen displays up-to-date costs of instances set by the Cloud Providers.
Use the filters box to narrow the results of instances which are displayed.
The Tags screen lists the tags which have created either by an Analytics administrator or by the Buttonwood platform.
Two types of tags exist in the platform:
- Organisation Tags: Created and maintained by administrative users within an organisation, and can be assigned values when used in Deployments and Resources
- System Tags: Created and maintained by the Buttonwood platform such as the Broker, and cannot be modified by users
