Dashboard for Google Cloud

Use the dashboard to view Google Cloud resale metrics and trends, such as customer costs and top projects. You can find the latest information for one or all of your customers.

The dashboard shows data from billing subaccounts that you assigned to customers or created in the Partner Sales Console (placing an order for Google Cloud).

The customer costs show the data from your reseller Cloud Billing accounts with assigned billing subaccounts. The dashboard also alerts you to the amount in billing subaccounts that are not assigned to a customer.

Costs, trends, and data in the dashboard

View data and metrics for orders placed in Partner Sales Console and for billing subaccounts that you assigned to customers. The dashboard also shows the amount of spend for unassigned billing subaccounts.

Dashboard data is retrieved in real time. A date range that includes today's date (such as the current month or a custom date range) displays the most recent usage available.

Types of costs in the dashboard

  • Cost at list price: The cost if Google Cloud's public pricing rate for a SKU or service was applied to the usage. In other words, the cost before discounts, credits, and negotiated prices.
  • Customer cost: The cost expectation for charges to a customer. Uses custom repricing, when available. Does not include your Google Reseller Program discount or offline credits.
  • Net cost (not available to users with Entitlement roles): The total costs for reseller charges. Includes your Google Reseller Program discount, negotiated savings, SUDs, CUDs, and spending-based discounts. Net cost does not include offline credits.
  • Gross profit (not available to users with Entitlement roles): Your total profit, shown as the difference between customer cost and net cost. If you have no custom repricing configurations defined, this is equivalent to your Reseller Program Discount and excludes offline credits.
  • Spend in unassigned billing subaccounts. The total net cost of billing subaccounts that aren't assigned to any customer accounts. Custom repricing does not apply to these accounts.

Note: Custom repricing information is reflected on Customer Cost and Gross profit starting December 1, 2022.

Troubleshooting
  • The charts don't show data for some billing accounts or subaccounts

  • You might be missing the Billing Account Viewer or Billing Account Administrator role on some of your reseller billing accounts. Check with another Billing Account Administrator or a super administrator in your organization.
  • If you're an Entitlement Manager, you might be missing the Billing Account Viewer or Billing Account Administrator role on the billing subaccounts.
  • Data for Google Cloud offline orders isn't available in the Dashboard charts.
  • A chart is missing information for some subaccounts

Unassigned billing subaccounts show in the charts as "Unassigned spend..." You need to assign a billing subaccount to a customer in the Partner Sales Console for them to display in the chart with their proper name. To view unassigned customer accounts:

  1. From the home page, click Billing > Unassigned subaccounts.

    The Unassigned Billing Subaccounts page lists billing subaccounts that aren't assigned to a customer account.

  2. Follow the steps to assign subaccounts to a customer.

  • Alert message: "Assign Google Cloud Platform customers to their subaccounts..."

When you click "" View dashboard on a customer's page, you get the alert, "Assign Google Cloud Platform customers to their subaccounts to see aggregate spend, top movers, and more". The View dashboard button appears on all customer accounts, regardless of whether a customer has a billing subaccount (subscription).
