Cost Estimation

Note

Cost estimation is only available on the paid tiers. See Scalr pricing here.

Scalr integrates with Infracost to provide an estimate of cost based on the Terraform plan. Cost estimation is carried out as part of the terraform plan run, immediately after the plan has been generated.

See Infracost for details of providers and resources that are currently included in the cost estimation.

Enabling Cost Estimation

Cost estimation is enabled or disabled per environment by checking the “Enable cost estimation” box within the environment settings.
