Need a mechanism for the customer to do internal chargeback via the Cloud Management Console.

I see something that is needed and should be easy to implement in the CMC.

That being a mechanism for customer internal Charge-back.


One of the benefits of the “cloud” is that the cost is easy accountable.

However, that has not been easy with on-prem Power.

The customer had to cobble together some mechanism to do that.


PEP2.0 is great but it still lacks the ease of accountability at a granular level for the customer to charge-back to internal customers.

The usage data is available on the CMC.  We just lack the facility for the customer to use that data to get a personalized report do internal charge-back.
