Low Service Usage Policy

What it does

This Policy Template reports on services with low usage. Low usage of a specific service in a region by an account is often indicative of tests or experiments by users, which often are forgotten and left running. Investigate this usage to determine if it should be terminated or potentially consolidated into a larger account/region for ease of management.
