Vantage API

The Vantage API allows users to programmatically access their cost data as well as create cost resources, such as Cost Reports, Folders, Saved Filters, and Dashboards.

You can access the API documentation to read more about available endpoints and associated endpoint parameters. You can also perform API calls directly from the documentation.


Keep in mind that when using the API reference tool to perform API calls, you are working with your live data.

When viewing an endpoint, all available parameters will be listed on the corresponding API documentation page, along with any requirements.

  • You can choose to display the request in numerous programming languages, such as Python, Ruby, or JavaScript.
  • Click the Try It! button. The Response and any errors are displayed below the request.
