Hello,

I'm new to CCF and wanted to take a look into the Lookup Table creation.
What puzzles me is the example Athena query:
The WHERE clause is 'NOT IN ('Usage', 'DiscountedUsage', 'SavingsPlanCoveredUsage')' - why NOT IN?! Shouldn't it be IN?

I asked this, because I looked into our bill CSV files and by filtering with NOT IN I don't get any rows containing vCpus. If I filter with IN then I get a lot of rows including also vCpus values.

Additionally I also see "SavingsPlanNegation" as line_item_line_item_type.

Thanks for your support,
Johannes

Hi Johannes,

Thanks for reaching out and pointing out this issue! You are in fact correct. It should be 'IN' rather than 'NOT IN', we made a typo.
We will make that update to the example.

Cool!, thanks for your response!
So far I didn't follow the LookupTable since AWS support is able to backfill our Athena integration with historical data from the last year.
If they wouldn't have this offer I would have tried to scrape our cost & usage reports CSVs from the last months and to come up with some calculations with the Lockuptable,
but honestly I'm glad that I don't need to go this path: I would have struggled which value from CSV to multiply with which value from Lockuptable and second I wouldn't have this nice dashboard!

I additionally created https://github.com/cloud-carbon-footprint/cloud-carbon-footprint/issues/457 and I'm glad that you're already on it. I'm happy to help on this as much as I can.

Thanks and keep it up!
Jo
