We have started the work to include all AzureRm modules by default with your Automation account.
We are excited to announce the preview release of alerting and monitoring for Azure backups. Please follow the announcement @ https://twitter.com/AzureBackup/status/765586365509754880
Program Manager – Azure backup.
Each service will enable this independently over time. Most services already have this available today from their resource blade.
Thanks for the feedback!Marius commented
I will quicky add services like SQL Database, or even Web Sites or Mobile Services.
Even if this means unprovisionning / reprovisionning behind (with longer duration), we should still have:
- all the configuration stored
- all the public adresses (like subdomains) still reserved (even if that will cost "a bit")
Thanks Glenn, we agree. We’ll be looking to do this in the next calendar year.

Thanks for all the feedback folks. Unfortunately this is taking longer than we’d like.
We will reach back out when we are closer to a preview.
We have been considering all of the risks and investigating the steps required to ensure we implement this feature with high positive impact and low to no negative impact.
After this investigation we have decided we will enable Pay-As-You-Go customers the option to configure a spending limit on a Pay-As-You-Go subscription, with appropriate safeguards and measures to prevent both service abuse and production service failure.
We have not yet finished determining the details of what this feature will look like, nor do we have a timeline for release, but we have heard your voices and have added this feature to our backlog.
Thanks for your continued feedback,

Have MSDN subscription with monthly usage. Just had a test with Reporting service (one server instance created) and left it on after using it. I have now ~130EUR bill charge. It's completely insane not being able to cap usage if we want. These are not production accounts, so we should be able to master the charge there. Also, how it is possible not to to be able to set usage limit alerts?
