When looking at the cost management blade, I see several costs broken down by each piece of a resource. I'd like to see total cost of a given VM, with all of it's resources bundled in. An example would be a server I built has three disks, a network interface and the actual VM size. I want to see the total cost of that VM without having to dig through a report and identify the different pieces that tie in to a server. This is especially useful when the Azure environment is inherited and I didn't get the opportunity to name disks/network interfaces based on the server.

Azure billing --> Costs by resource --> Timespan selection --> New menuitem for the last (whole billed) day. For checking fees of the recent day. Interesting during testing of different services / combinations.3 votes
Makes sense. Vote this up to let us know how important it is for you.
Please can a role be created purely for the use of a companies accounts team. This role would only be permitted access to the subscription invoices along with predicted costs.3 votes
This concept of a Billing administrator role is one we are actively working to implement within portal.azure.com.

The "Running Costs" shows what appears to be the subscription ID. I'm assuming this is simply a factor of this being a Preview. But, I would like to see the name of the subscription here (perhaps even a tooltip). Also, as I move my mouse over the graph line, it would be cool to see a tip with the value changing.3 votes
Thanks Michael, we are working on that view and should have it in early 2016.

Currently you are only able to select a 12 month window to report on costs. It would be helpful to be able to select more than 12 months so you can view multiple years2 votes
For trend analysis it would be ideal to be able to compare one month's daily consumption against another.2 votes
It would be great to create configurations in the Azure Cost Calculator and inject them into the Azure Cost Management. Then you can monitor against your original configuration (for a specific service) and check how the actual costs are performing against the initial (configured) calculated budget. This will provide clear insights for decision making and definitely will save time (manual tagging / analysis).2 votes
Upon viewing a report that was grouped by "billing period" for the last year (2019), the totals of all of the 12 mos shown in each period bar does not add up to the total value shown in the "Actual cost" field for the whole report.
The total shown is about $10k higher than the actual monthly costs added up together.
Something is wrong with this report's accuracy. Cant trust it w/o doing my own math to check it.2 votes
In the Azure portal, I am able to get a daily (and full month) Cost Analysis with a filter for tags for the full subscription (all resources).
In the API I was able to find, I was not able to odata filter on "tagname eq" and "tagvalue eq". This filter seemed to be skipped. So that tag name+value filter is something I'd like to see so I can get customer usage and cost by code instead of clicking around in the Azure portal.2 votes
Cost Management in Power BI is in need for better documentation. By default only Last7Days are returned as Lookbackperiod.
Can other periods be requested by parameters?
Also InstanceFlexibilityRatio and normalized size columns needs documentation and values does not always make sense when comparing.2 votes
Cost analysis saved report not working with tags.
Created Cost analysis report with Tag as group by. When i select report graph showing unable to load.2 votes
We’re working on a fix. Sorry for the invonvenience!
we want to understand which of our
resource group and services are
costing how much.
We need a detailed bill to understand
Can we get a detailed bill which is split
based on the resource group, with the
bill of each of VM shown separately?2 votes
Definitely! Start by grouping by resource or resource group in cost analysis. You can download that in a CSV or Excel file for further analysis. There’s plenty more coming, but let us know if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see beyond that.
Add functionality to browse the cost based on multiple subscriptions2 votes
Please view costs across subscriptions by organizing subscriptions into management groups. There are no plans to introduce multi-select scopes outside of management groups today, but we’ll keep this feedback open to track the request. To help prioritize, please add specifics about how management groups are not addressing your needs in this area.
Wish I could also use it to look at last year's data to make some y to y comparisons...2 votes
This definitely sounds useful! Let us know how important it is to you by voting it up.
Cost analysis should allow grouping and filtering by the EA cost center property2 votes
We’ll definitely do this!
I do like the new drill down UI and now able to see per day very needed.
I would like to see new charges per day and be able to sort on new market place items.2 votes

- Why are you showing Accumlated info from 1st of each month?
- there is no last 30 days (1 month) option date range drodown box
- I don't understand how to use 'Custom' date range UI
- I can recognize 'Windows VM' cost is too high from Service name donat chart. Then click the 'Windows VM' resource, then I guessed all Windows VM list with each cost, but NO. What kind of useful info can I get in next page??
Accumulated allows you to get a quick view of how your costs are trending against your budget.
We’ll add more options to the date picker and simplify the custom date range experience. Let us know if there are any specific changes you’d like to see in this area. We’ll also look at ways to optimize the drill-down experience.
Thanks for the feedback!
Allow Azure OPEN customers to manage their cloud spend with transparency and accuracy via Cost Management, (aka Cloudyn).2 votes
Absolutely! Let us know how important this is by voting it up. We’ll continue to go down the list of top asks.
Can anyone tell me what "other azure purchase", or "no resource group" or "no resource" means when I'm looking at the billing analysis?
Come on, there's got to be better detail provided other than "other azure purchases". How am I supposed to know what to do with "other azure purchases"?1 vote
I would like to be able to export data for previous month with the scheduled export, so I can have an export running on the 1th of the month, there's exporting all transaction-linies for the previous month.1 vote
