  1. Schedule export granular report

    while exporting a data it shows all granularity levels or filters in portal page, but when we try to export data (schedule export) it does not allow to select more granular fields, example by Resource name or type or anything. when we generate CSV there is no column which shows resource name which is indeed a very necessary thing because we need to map resource cost to cost management tools. Secondly we need to have a option for total aggregated resource cost (including VM, storage, disk etc) in excel to schedule export.

    That CSV should contain CPU count, RAM count,…

  2. Port EA's portal's Price Sheet to Cost Management

    Currently the vendor has to enable 'Mark Up' for a customer to be able to download their Price Sheet. Please port the ability to download the 'Price Sheet' into the Cost Management ARM blade

  3. Emphasize the cost of support plan during 12 months trial

    When you go to upgrade your subscription page (after 1 month with 200$ credit), you have to select a support plan. And on the side it says that you won't pay for free services or services that are paid during 12 months of trial. But you do have to pay for support plan. I think you should add a noticable warning there. I'm not sure if there was a no support plan option there, but it should be.

  4. Details of any adjustments/credits should be included in the billing report

    Currently the only way to view the credit/adjustment amount is via the EA portal in the reports tab and even that does not provide a proper breakdown of the amount or any clarity on what the credit is for and for which subscription it is applicable.

    Any credits/adjustments received from Microsoft should be included in the billing report, which can also be pulled down using the consumption API.

    A few additional rows in the CSV report indicating credit in the "Cost" or "ExtendedCost" column would make this more transparent.

  5. Get sponsorship credit spend via API

    I am opening this feedback on behalf of the customer.
    Get sponsorship credit spend via API

    Customer wanted to be able to access the underlying data that is kept at https://www.microsoftazuresponsorships.com/Usage from an API.

    Downloading the CSV or JSON from API would be acceptable.
    They wanted to query their credits remaining via an API - it seems like it would be a common concern, especially with price conscious startups on Sponsorship programme. They would like to program something that clicks through the browser to download the .csv every day instead.

  10. Enable Cost Management Blade for CSP Partners & Customers

    118030717768771

    Opening on behalf of customer. IT would be great to enable the Cost Management Blade in portal.azure.com for CSP. This would not only give customers the ability to better monitor their spendin by resource/resource group but also allow partners to do so as well.

    The usage file and invoice do not show information based on resource or resource group which poses challenges in understand how much a service actually costs.

    I am opening this feedback up as part of SR #118030717768771 on behalf of the customer
