Multiple CURs

This step is used when there are multiple CURs being delivered into the same bucket - for example a CUR with hourly granularity and one with daily granularity. This will automatically update Athena/Glue when there are new versions and new months data for both reports.

The easiest way to work with multiple CURs is to deliver each CUR to a different S3 bucket, and follow the previous process. If you must deliver to a single bucket, configure your CURs with different prefixes or folders and follow this process.

  1. Log into the console as an IAM user with the required permissions, verify you have multiple CURs with different prefixes being delivered into the same bucket. We will have the following configuration:
<bucket name>/<prefix>/<report_name>/

<bucket name>/DailyCUR/daily/
<bucket name>/HourlyCUR/hourly/
  1. Open the S3 console, and navigate to one of the directories where CURs are stored. Open and save the crawler-cfn.yml file: Images/AWSMultiCUR0.png

  2. Open the file in your favourite text editor

  3. Modify the following lines to remove all references to the prefix or report name. Replace the first line with the second in each case: Under AWSCurDatabase:

Name: 'athenacurcfn_daily'
Name: 'athenacurcfn'

Under AWSCURCrawlerComponentFunction:

Resource: arn:aws:s3:::<bucket name>/DailyCUR/daily/daily*
Resource: arn:aws:s3:::<bucket name>*                

Under AWSCURCrawler:

Name: AWSCURCrawler-daily
Name: AWSCURCrawler


Path: 's3://<bucket name>/DailyCUR/daily/daily'
Path: 's3://<bucket name>'

and under Exclusions after .zip add:


Under AWSPutS3CURNotification:

ReportKey: 'DailyCUR/daily/daily'
ReportKey: ''

Under AWSCURReportStatusTable:

DatabaseName: athenacurcfn_daily
DatabaseName: athenacurcfn


Location: 's3://<bucket name>/DailyCUR/daily/cost_and_usage_data_status/'
Location: 's3://<bucket name>/cost_and_usage_data_status/'

  1. Save the template file.

  2. Go to the CloudFormation dashboard and execute the template you just created Images/AWSMultiCUR1.png

  3. Go to the Glue dashboard and verify that there is a single database, containing multiple tables: Images/AWSMultiCUR2.png
