Cost Management Advisor recommendation to Scale Down to Free Tier
Cost Management Advisor does not give recommendations to Scale Down App Services to the Free Tier if they are hardly used.
I had a very frustrating experience as a developer, where I am testing the Automated Azure Machine Learning and QnAMaker which creates an App Service. The defaults are S1. I tried this once and left it. The costs were accruing on a daily basis and my Visual Studio Subscription became suspended within a few days. At no point did the Cost Management Advisor give any recommendations at all to reduce costs and it was a colleague that told me to go to the Scale Up blade and change the tier. This was even more frustrating in that you cannot change the tier of the service whilst the subscription is suspended and I had to wait for 3 weeks until the start of the next billing period.
