Possible/Worth-it merging different AWS accounts into one AWS Organisation
**Current situation:** We have multiple AWS accounts, one per customer to make use of the free tier. **Question:** Would it be **possible** in the future to merge these different AWS accounts into one AWS Organisation? being each AWS account an Organizational Unit. The main reason to keep them separate at the beginning would be to make use of different free tiers. Reasons to put them later together into one AWS Organisation are Consolidated Billing (once the resources in each account are bigger) and easier management. Also interested in hearing reasons to put them (or not) all in one account
BUG REPORT: Can't delete EC2 Snapshots
I found a topic saying that AWS bugs should be reported here, so doing it. We're paying 0.7cts a day for snapshots, and I'd like to reduce this to the minimum. BUt, when I go to the console, I see 30171 snapshots. That's huge, I don't understand how can I have so many. So I sort them to at least delete the biggest one. I see that: eg: ``` snap-0fc57f27e1eb05e19 500 GiB – Standard Completed 2018/08/02 22:17 GMT+2 ``` ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMXkVupGaAQXiXXgLe6NAjxQ) Snapshot from 2018? The root account has been created in 2020, so it's not even possible. So I try to delete it, and now I have this message: ``` Failed to delete snapshot. snap-0fc57f27e1eb05e19: The snapshot 'snap-0fc57f27e1eb05e19' does not exist. ``` ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMPfCCv1PdQGa15DAzKGeqvQ) So I guess that's a bug, and we're paying for it. What should I do?
Why am I being billed for API Gateway when I have no APIs
I am being billed for the API Gateway service because I have supposedly received 1,449.000 requests. However, it looks like I don't have any APIs deployed. I would like to fully disable any APIs that could possibly be receiving those requests. How do I turn it off? ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMH_NieIixT3Oz4_9l3D8EcQ) ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMtd7EcqewS0Cswm2bRWg8IA)
How do I pay multiple AWS invoices (i.e. balance due) with a single payment?
Between issues with my MFA and not using the service, I accumulated many $0.80 charges over multiple months. In the payment screen I see no "pay balance due" option and the invoices (each $0.80) appear to only be individually selectable for payment. Is there any way to pay them all with a single payment?
Why huge AWS Personalize bills for unused service?
Several months ago I wanted to test out AWS Personalize and uploaded a 35MB .csv file with some data, abandoned it and certainly didn't "use" the service in any way. Nevertheless AWS has been billing me around 1000EUR a month, for "2,157.000 Recommender Hours - $0.375 per recommender hour for first 100k users" Needless to say I'm horrified at having been billed such a huge amount over 5000 EUR for a service I wasn't using (I only discovered it this late because my payment method is connected to a bank account that I thought was dormant with no reason for me to monitor it ... lesson learned) The docs say: "With Amazon Personalize, you pay only for what you use. The costs of Amazon Personalize depend on data processing, training, and number of recommendation requests." How can I find out what exactly I've been billed for? Is it possible that someone abused my account in any way? The 2175 hours on the last invoice corresponds to 90 days, so I guess 3 recommenders were running full time? Why would this be the case if this service is (afaik) not being used or accessed in any way? Is there any way I can dispute or reclaim these charges? Thanks
Direct Debet Crd Changed by Bank
Hi, Ive updated my billing card in AWS but there are lots of invoices that failed payment. Now the card is updated will AWS take the amounts ASAP as I have a deadline of 10/10/22 to pay them, otherwise they are saying they will ban me from AWS! I can't see a way in billing how I can get the amounts to pay for each invoice. The total is only £30'ish from a lot of invoices. There appears to be no way to actually talk to AWS re issues like this, which is frustrating. AWS 'help' pages do not help at all! Any ideas? My company has since closed do I can't send an invoice, and thus need Amazon to take the monies from each outstanding Invoice. Many thanks.
Redshift Serverless Charging
Redshift Serverless Charging The Charge of Compute usage on Frankfurt region for Redshift Serverless is not matching the log on the sys_serverless_usage . I have charged by 758 RPU -Hour on the month of sep till 28th , while the below query for the same period returned 76 RPUHour ? select date_trunc('day',start_time) usage_date, sum(compute_seconds) com_sec, sum(((compute_seconds) ) )/ (60 * 60 ) total_consumer_hour, (sum(((compute_seconds) ) )/ (60 * 60 ) ) * (0.45) compute_cost from sys_serverless_usage group by date_trunc('day',start_time) I believe the issue on the charging is dividing the compute seconds by (60 times 6) rather than (60 times60), this is also happen when setting alert on RPU-USAGE is also alert on the number i post (example 20 RPU-H daily) it alert on 2 RPU-H.
Billing for external AWS account identity
I am making CloudWatchAPI calls (e.g. GetMetricData) using client identity from account A to pull metric data from another account B (stores and generates the metric). Which account is billed for that: the account A (that owns the client identity) or the account B (where the metric resides)? Is there a documentation that would cover? Is there a documentation for other AWS services?
How compute saving plan going to be adjusted?
I am very much confused in terms of how saving plan going to be adjusted between those instances? As an example, if we purchased 4 instances, each instance would cost **$5** per hour and a saving plan would cost **$4**, so we purchased a **compute saving plan** by committing **$13** per hour How this saving plan will be adjusted between those instances? Since 3 instances would consume **$12** how **$1** going to be adjusted? because we have purchased Rs.13 per hour saving plan?
