Allow Azure Sponsorship acounts to view real time usage of resources.
If you have an Azure Sponsorship due to non-profit status, when you go to billing and usage, it directs you to the sponsorship portal where you are told how much money is used, but it does not tell any details as to why. I submitted a support desk question on this and was given the reply that we must wait for the end of the month for our monthly invoice to see that. Since we are just wading into the water with Azure, even if I tried using the pricing calculator, we won't know 'for sure' until we actually do it. We need to be able to monitor our usage, even if you are giving us $5,000.
We are selling this stuff to our customers and need to know what we are selling. Please make this happen. Thanks.

We are evaluating on our sponsorship plan various services, but get no insights in the costs of that service. We also want to use warnings insight the cost management with that subcriptions. So please make this subscriptions available with the standard functionality in the cost management
Have you used the https://www.microsoftazuresponsorships.com/ portal to check balances and usage details?
On a sponsorship plan where we are trialing various services, it is impossible to know whether when we come off the plan, what our costs will be. Great case of getting you in deep while its 'free' but you could end up paying hugely later.

As a non-profit migrating to azure, we are saddened to see that we cannot monitor our real time usage of resources. We are learning azure as we go, so being able to see the live impact of our choices in terms of cost even if we are getting free credit.
Agree - we are part of the program but have no idea what our Logic App actually costs or why. Even on a pay as you go subscription the pricing is painfully opaque - but the sponsorship element makes it even worse
They are just providing the cost for total VM's not for each VM. So by this we can't estimate how much the particular VM is costing. And also, there is no particular details on which service type the VM is using.
It only shows the total amount rather than seperate resource amount.
Hi! same thing here. We did a PowerBI report with two calls to both usage and rate card api, in order to maintain an estimated of the consumed.

Agree with this, the billing from azure showing all zero. Previously I do ask azure support send me a report on detail number, unfortunately, it only show total number rather than separately resource amount.

We are also in receipt of a non-profit sponsorship and are having the same issues. The usage reports each month come back with a zero cost value so its difficult to plan ahead to ensure we stay within the $5000 limit.
To get the costs for our subscription so far I had to raise a ticket with support and after a few days they sent me a breakdown in dollars of what we had used so far. Unfortunately until the billing section works for sponsorships requesting reports is the only way to see the dollar cost of your usage.
