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,
-Adam (Azure Billing Team)
Ditto; this is the only thing stopping me using Azure.
Such a simple feature, approaching 7 years since it was raised and 4 since it was "Planned".
Do Microsoft read these at all?
I really want to use Azure but I can't give you unlimited access to my bank account.
You're forcing people to go elsewhere, this can not make business sense.
Microsoft should also be embarrassed by how long this has been "Planned".
Why is there still no answer from Microsoft?
I'd like to use Azure and don't mind paying but giving them unlimited access to my bank account is crazy.
