Today in Azure billing we can see tag details of compute, storage and network only. Can you extend this to all Azure Resources.18 votes
Most Azure services support tags today. The few resource types which do not support tags are working on it. If you find a specific resource type is missing tags, please file a support request with that team.
It would be great to be able to export the charts into a pdf or image or something like that. Not all of our internal customers have access to Azure, but do want this information.13 votes
Downloading an image of your customized view in cost analysis is now available in Cost Management Labs @ aka.ms/costmgmt/preview. Try it out and let us know what you’d like to see next!
Right now, Azure Cost Management requires several steps to setup a new Cloudyn account with new subscriptions. It'd be nice if this was handled automatically behind the scenes.4 votes
We’re working on this now. Stay tuned!
Currently the billing information and the usage statistics are sub-divided in CPU, network, disk, etc.
Please provide the ability to drill down into these categories to
identify cost for each machine (per category).
Billing statistics are still very basic and unfortunately the lack of tools to get a quick overview of resource consumption results in higher TCO for your customers.
Thanks for your feedback. We’ve heard this suggestion from other customers as well and are looking into providing instance-level costs.

Cost Management should support WebDirect pay-as-you-go and dev/test subscriptions.2 votes
We’re working on it! Stay tuned!
It appears there's no way to validate your cost or spend (from the portal for sure) until AFTER you've run over your budget I guess? Seems p
Sure don't care for not having any idea what's been spend, what is cost, until receiving a bill AFTER the fact. Wow, what if I spent my entire budget accidentally on a VM session? This seems pretty common to all providers, else why would vendors be offering wildly expensive tools to do what should be a simple click-on-the-vendors-portal and see your expenses, up to the minute?2 votes
This is available for Enterprise Account (EA) subscriptions today and will be available for pay-as-you-go and dev/test subscriptions soon. CSP support is also planned and will come later.
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.2 votes
This concept of a Billing administrator role is one we are actively working to implement within portal.azure.com.

As tags are very important for cost management, it would be great to set budgets and alerts on tags.1 vote
Thanks for the feedback! You can already create budgets based on tags using the Budgets API. Support for specifying budget filters in the portal is coming in Q3 2019.
We are in April, but Cost Analysis shows This Month as May 2019, and Last Month as April 2019. That's the date selector in between Accumulated costs and Granularity.1 vote
Thanks for the feedback. The cost analysis date picker shows the billing period, not the calendar month. Your billing period ends in May. We’ll add an “Invoice” label when looking at a billing period to be a little more explicit and keep an eye on feedback. If needed, we can also show a more explicit date range.
1. When we logged into azure and select cost management, azure showing a cost of a subscription.
2. 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.
3. 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.
I need the resource group contributor or similar role to have the ability to see cost analysis on the resource group level only. It is important they not be able to see the cost analysis on the subscription level or other resource groups they don't have permission to access. This allows the user to have visibility and control of the spending of their project. We are looking to provide visibility to resource group owners.1 vote
This is already available for Enterprise Agreement (EA) subscriptions and resource groups. Support for pay-as-you-go and dev/test is coming soon. While the old cost by resource table isn’t available for CSP today, the new cost analysis experience is also in progress for CSP subscriptions.
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.
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
