This new feature will make usage data available through the Abiquo API.
The new "cost usage" API endpoint provides usage data in hours for the platform. This feature requires the “Manage bills” privilege. It retrieves and stores some data from the Abiquo Accounting module on a daily basis. This data in hours is categorized by resources. You can also filter, access, and manage this data from the action endpoints under cost usage.
In this initial release the cost usage feature does not use granular resource pricing, and while it can be aligned with the pricing model, it is not integrated to it directly. In future releases, Abiquo will continue to develop these features to enable customers to easily retrieve and manage cloud usage and accounting data.
