Download usage as a CSV file

To get a CSV file containing detailed usage data, you can either:

  • Download it from the account console by going to the Usage Overview tab and clicking the Download itemized usage button.

  • Download it using the billable usage log download API.

For the CSV file schema, see CSV file schema. You can import this file into Databricks for analysis.

Deliver billable usage logs to your own S3 bucket

You can configure automatic delivery of billable usage CSV files into an S3 bucket in your AWS account. See Deliver and access billable usage logs.

Automatic log delivery allows you to control sharing of these details with other users. Other users who are authorized for this data do not need to rely on the account owner to regularly navigate to the account console to download a CSV file to share.

For the CSV schema, see CSV file schema.

For information about how to analyze these files using Databricks, see Analyze usage data in Databricks.
