    @Laura Pfeifer: Please work with Avaloq to let us know if the info in logs and Activity Tracker (as explained in previous comment) are enough.

    All the consumption is available as part of invoice details and on Usage Dashboard.

If this level of details is required, it should be available in logs and Activity Tracker output.
