Cost Management: Need a custom dynamic dashboard that can be pinned on the Azure Portal as a banner, so the members of the subscription including admins can view upon every login.1 vote
Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.
- When we logged into azure and select cost management, azure showing a cost of a subscription.
- I click on that cost from the above screen, then azure showing a screen, where it shows a cost which is different than the previous number.
- Now from this screen, if I download the resources cost, then that downloaded excel is showing another cost.
We don't know which one to consider.
The difference between cost analysis and the download is a known bug, which is being fixed now. The problem is related to how the cost by resource view calculates the cost of tags over time. The total cost shown in cost analysis is accurate. We’ll need more information to understand the difference with the first screen.
We can only see data for the current month, which is no use at all. Been through support and have battled with them to keep the support ticket open until it is fixed as everything I have read up on and the obvious date picker shows that you should be able to see prior date data. They suggested I posted my issue on here!!!! So posted I have1 vote
Reaching out for more information…
Currenly when a weekly/monthly bar chart is created to track actual spending on a subscription it includes the total accumulated spend over the period covered by the bar chart and the budget amount. However if this chart is pinned to a dashboard, the accumulated spend and budget does not show on the dashboard version. Only the bar chart is pinned. Including the accumulated total spend, budget, and the forecast to the end of the year would provide valuable information on the dashboard.1 vote
We’ll take a look at this. Thanks for reporting!
I want to set the default view for each scope or possibly for all subscriptions or resource groups.1 vote
This would be great!
We should be able to click anywhere to drill into a grouping of costs based on the relationships between those properties. For instance, if I click a subscription, I want to see resource groups. When I click a resource group, I want to see resources. I should be able to do this from the pie chart labels at the bottom or even from the main chart itself. I should also be able to drill-in from the data table. Help me drill in with fewer clicks!1 vote
EA Customer needs the option integrated in the Azure Portal; to be able to create a cost report scheduled weekly and automatically sent to his email, broken into managed group created.1 vote
Absolutely! Let us know how important this is to you by voting it up!
more detail on what is the cause of some costs. I have a logic app that is disabled but the total cost sometimes increases by €0.01.1 vote
Great idea! Let us know how important this is by voting it up.
Show the rates when I group by meter1 vote
We will definitely do this!
spinning up vm's for testing , shutting them down in couple of hours is very costly.. Cost analysis should also include savings like how developers while testing their deployment templates can optimize the cost utlilisation.1 vote
This is definitely something we want to do. Vote it up to let us know how important it is for you.
Would be great if we could save the pie for dessert, and shift away from donut charts toward a default of more easily consumable bar charts.1 vote
This has always been the plan. The donut charts were part of the Cloudyn acquisition. Each chart will support full customization, like the main chart. We don’t have an ETA on this, but vote it up to let us know how important it is to you. We’re going down the list of requests.
As there is a known lag between cost of resources being incurred and data reaching various Cost Analysis reports, a column capturing the timestamp of the validity of the costs displayed would allow better cost estimation and impact analysis of changes in configuration or traffic.1 vote
We’ll look into this.
Unfortunately, usage is emitted separately by each service at different times, so the last update time may not be an accurate freshness indicator. In general, data is up to 8 hours old and is updated every 4 hours.
This is a very important progress for the monitoring of consumption
By with the labels on the pie charts are still in English thank you for putting everything in French we deserve it well1 vote
Since you removed the old cost analysis Its been a big pain to see the cost grouped by resource group and to drill down in each resource group to see the resource cost.
I suggest that you revert back to the old cost analysis without graphs where you could see ALL (not only top 10) resource groups and also could drill down and see the cost per resource inside each resource group without having to exit the current view.1 vote
We’ll improve the data table view and enable the same ability to drill down. You can still get to the old cost by resource experience by clicking the “Cost by resource” command at the top of the blade for now.
Please let us know if there are any specifics you’d like to see.
There are different ResourceLocation field for the same location in Cost analysis.
Grouping by ResourceLocation in Cost analysis shows East US location in 3 different format
- East US
Similar problem with East US2
Please consolidate, use one string for one location.1 vote
We will definitely clean this up.
Can you please provide BYOL report for Azure EA accounts?1 vote
This is definitely on our list. Please vote it up to let us know how important it is for you. We’ll continue to go down the list of the top asks.
The page https://account.azure.com/Subscriptions lists subscriptions and for each subscription, I can see the current usage of that subscription. Azure offsers Cost Management (Cloudyn) -- I suppose they offer better insight and more elaborate analyses -- but the data included in the linked account page could be very useful.
It could very well be that it is already included somewhere, but I can't find it?1 vote
This is already available for Enterprise Agreement (EA) accounts today and will be available for pay-as-you-go and dev/test subscriptions soon. CSP support is also planned and will be available later.
We use the Actual Cost over Time report in Cost Analysis for weekly reporting. Due to the latency of data entering Cloudyn it would be really useful to have a previous days in the drop down so that we can get a full weeks of data. Currently the only way to do this is to set a date range and change the range every week.
For 30 reports this is very time consuming.
The predefined previous 30 days available is too long a period for us as we want to scrutinise just the changes since the previous week.1 vote
Do you feel you’d still need this with 8-hour latency?
We’re working on native Azure integration with a low-latency data pipeline, which should avoid the problem you mentioned here. Will that address your concerns? Let us know!
where is the Azure Sql as a service in the cost by service drop down, right now there is no place for me to specify I want to see the costs just for azure sql… or epools. you have generalized the services for some lame reason. The built in cost adviser in azure does this so why would I use this service as an add on that costs us?1 vote
Reaching out for more info…
I selected last month. It said there was not data and then greyed out the timespan so i could not change back to current.
had to leave and comeback.1 vote
Thanks for reporting! We’ll take a look.
- Don't see your idea?
