Stax uses Views to display your AWS data in a way that aligns with your business needs.

When creating Views with similar setups, dimensions and segments, you can duplicate an existing View. This allows you to to save time and effort while creating new Views.

Before You Begin

  • Estimated time to complete: 5 minutes
  • When creating new Views, it may take up to (or in some cases more than) four hours for the View's cost and compliance data to display correctly
  • Ensure you are a member of either the Admin or Cost & Compliance Admin role in your Stax tenancy
  • You should have a good understanding of your organization's tag and account structure

What Is Copied When a View Is Duplicated?

Duplicating a View will create a new View with the following settings copied:

  • Segment, dimensions, and mapped data
  • Monthly Budgets
  • Shared Infrastructure
