Spending limit for subscription and for Dev/Test Lab
Having spending limits both on subscription level and on Dev/Test Lab level. Possible to configure values in parallel:
- maximum daily spending
- maximum monthly spending
- maximum overall spending
Dev/Test Lab is created for sandbox or for smaller project environments. Separated subscription is created for bigger projects temporarily. These environments got unlimited credit today, only possible to control cost indirectly (to limit number of VMs or VmSizes) or proactively (budget alert). It is typically good for planned actions but there is a risk that cost dramatically overrun as of unplanned activities, e.g. via high outbound network traffic. Spending limit could definitely lower the cost risk and lower the governance effort.
