Whilst this is not a mandatory requirement, we strongly recommend that this is installed and initially configured in “Dry Run” mode, which lists actions without executing them.

This AWS service auto-switches WorkSpaces between Hourly and Monthly Cost modes on a monthly basis to ensure the WorkSpaces costs are optimised. ‘Dry Run’ mode means that recommendations will be shown in the WorkSpaces Manager Portal, but the recommended changes will not be applied. ‘Dry Run’ mode can be turned off later in the WorkSpaces Manager portal as to enable this function.

Please refer to the link below for more details and deployment instructions.

Please ensure that you are in the correct region before deployment:

After deploying the WorkSpaces cost optimizer, please make a note of the S3 Bucket ARN created, so that you can update it on the Config section.
