CREST API, standardize unit of measure please!
I'm working through the MSDN documentation (bad) located here:
I pulled the list of all Azure metered items from the API. I'm now looking at how to pull this into our financial system. I did a quick query to see how to bring in the units of measure, the “unit” field returned seems to be inconsistent and not well understood.
In the dataset I get from your API you return units that ranges from “1M Queries” and “1,000,000s” [seconds? Nope, transactions] and “1,000s” or “1000s”? This seems a little messy and not managed. Building an API into this now requires that I have to map your units of measure to “real” units of measure. Which would be a manually process, foregoing the advantage of actually having the API in the first place.
Any chance on getting this cleaned up?
Here's the list:
Virtual User Minutes
1M Data Points
