GCP Billing Bucket

Integrate the GCP Billing Bucket with InsightCloudSec


Deprecated Functionality

The functionality outlined below has been deprecated by GCP and is no longer supported. Contact [email protected] with questions or for additional information.

InsightCloudSec allows you to view billing information for your GCP accounts. To enable this feature, you must first configure a billing bucket within the GCP console. Then, you will add this information to the InsightCloudSec tool.

In the GCP Console

Before getting started:



You will need the storage.buckets.get permission, granted by a project owner, to create a GCP billing bucket.

In addition, you will need to have permission to access the Billing Export section of the Billing Page. Click here for more information.

Once permissions are granted, you can set up the billing bucket itself.

Setting up the Billing Bucket

1. Open the GCP console and access "Create Bucket". (You might enter "Bucket" in the search bar, then select "Create Bucket".)

Viewing Cloud Costs

InsightCloudSec will need to complete at least one billing cycle before cost information is available for viewing.

You can view costs associated with your GCP cloud by completing the following steps:

1. Access the Clouds main page (under Cloud on the navigation menu) and select the GCP cloud for which you have configured a billing bucket.

2. Select the Resources hamburger menu to the left of your selected Cloud. This will open the Resources main page, listing resources specific to your selected cloud.
