  1. Need to have option to select selective Subscriptions other than Management Group

    Need to have option to select selective Subscriptions other than Management Group.

    To be honest this is a very cumbersome process to create every time a new management group if I would like to do cost analysis over only a specific set of subscriptions where I`m authorized to.
    We have over 1000 subscriptions and our project leaders would like to get cost overviews over a specific set of subscriptions which is also frequently changing.

    In other services like in Security Center or Azure Advisor or All Resources I can select which subscriptions out of my global filter to include without…

  3. Provide a real Cost Breakdown for Azure Open Subscriptions

    Supply users of Azure Open Licensing with a real cost per Azure object (monetary) per month (compute, storage, etc are available). The usage statements that are produced are insufficient for easily determining what the costs of individual Assets are.

  4. Restricted Access to CSP multiple tenants

    Under Azure CSP, allow an option to give restricted read only access to CSP Tenants so that they can login with their own AD account and view their current spend etc.

  5. Allow Pack PowerBI Microsoft Azure Consumption Insights to Aure OPEN Subscription

    Allow Azure OPEN customers to use pack PowerBI Microsoft Azure Consumption Insights. Today we can't get analytics because to connect the powerBI pack we need an EA Enrollment.

  6. Subscription Cost Analysis needs to not be an invoice

    I'm inside an Azure Subcription and looking at the Cost Analysis with a line item of of a DDoS protection plan which charged me for $165.32. So I deleted the DDoS plan 15 minutes ago, but still shows under cost analysis as "Actual Cost". This report is somewhat vague on scope. "Actual Cost" should be "what am I getting charged for right now" and it's not $165.32. That amount is "what I WAS charged for in the past" so that's an invoice. I need a way to know that I'm getting charged $0 this month from now on, and the…

  7. Flexibility to pay in tranches or alternate method.

    Provide a way to pay invoices individually even when the latest incorporates outstanding charges, or provide a way to pay outside the normal method of CC charge when the CC limits are being exceeded and causing rejections.

  9. Cost Analysis

    I have noticed that I am charged a small amount every day although I have NO Apps running, i.e. after I stopped and deleted all apps. ? Is this a bug or am I viewing it incorrectly ?

  10. Cost Management - AWS Connector pricing model

    I was just shocked when I read that the AWS Connector costs 1% of my AWS costs. That is just ridiculous.

    If MS wants enterprises to switch to Azure, Azure should have a proper tooling during this transition period where the enterprise has both platforms.

    With this pricing model, I would argue that nobody will use it at all, which makes the entire feature useless.

    Please change to a pricing model based on actual usage.
