  1. Report Request - Cost vs. Number of Services

    I think a good report would be the total cost vs number of services, so that we can show that we're reducing cloud costs while increasing the number of services to our organization.

  3. allow us to enter friendly names for the subscriptions on AWS so that it can be easily understood on the dashboard

    The current AWS dashboard displays all the subscription numbers. What is really required is the ability for us to edit these to friendly Names for display and sort Purposes.

  4. Make it possible to automatically set users with permission to a sub as a contact

    Currently we set the permissions of a user to the specific subscriptions for which they are responsible.

    It would be nice if it were possible to have the persons with rights on specific subscriptions (excluding users with access to everything) to be set as a 'Contact' for the subscription which is displayed in the spending details window.

  5. View cost data based on azure billing cycle vs 1st-end of month

    My azure billing cycle on a particular subscription is 23rd -24th of each month instead of 1st-end of each month. Very odd but that's Azure.

    Instead of viewing usage from 1st - whichever day of the month it is I'd like to see cost data for my subscriptions billing period.

    This should then match up with invoices that accounts/my md pays.

  6. Make it possible to view which members have insight in which subscriptions

    In the 'Manage Team' view you can see the users and define which subscription they get to see.
    I would also like to see the list of subscriptions and see/define which users have view permissions on a particular subscription, so in other way define permissions the other way round.

  8. Allow visibility of billing even if under CSP

    Please make the billing and cost information available to the tenancy, even if the account is under a CSP agreement.
    This would help us to monitor our usage and costs during the month, and not just after the fact.

  9. add or remove subscriptions on existing contracts

    We have a directory with 50+ accounts, this is becoming unmanageable since we have to reconfigure all those accounts each time a subscription should be added. It would be really useful to add a subscription to an existing contract

  13. Make it possible to auto-generate a specific (montly) report

    Our financial department will be receiving a monthly export grouped on cost center so they can easily bill the departments.
    It would be helpfull if we would be able to schedule a monthly report that would automatically be sent by email to a specified email address.

  14. Allow to import custom data

    It should be possible to import data files manually, via drag & drop or via recurrent download from a specific url. This makes it possible to integrate third party services into the Azure Costs services to managed all costs from a single pane of glass.

  15. Allow for grouping on multiple levels

    When displaying the list grouped by subscriptions it would be helpfull if information on a lower level could also be grouped by another level (for example subscription) so things would like like :
    Cost Center1
    Subscription1
    Services
    Subscription2
    Services
    Cost Center2

  16. make it possible to put a tag on multiple entries

    I would like to be able to add a tag to multiple entries within a subscription at once, for example put a 'TEST' tag on all entries within a test subscription.

  17. Allow to archive & merge EA contracts

    During the renewal process around an EA contract it could happen that customers get a new EA number. Azure Costs should offer two the option to archive and merge an EA contract into a new one.

    The archived EA will not synced any more and no daily e-mail reports will send out. The merged one contains all the historic information so a seamless spending management of the migrated subscriptions is possible.

  18. Alerts on cost deviations from a 'baseline'

    Cost monitor is able to see the daily expenditure of a subscription, so it should be able to automatically calculate some kind of baseline. With this information it should be possible to send out an email alert if a subscription is spending a lot more money all of a sudden (because somebody left 10 big test VMs running for example).

  19. Dynamic Data Ranges

    The dropdown box for selecting just a single month is not enough. It would be helpful to make the timeframe selector for costs analysis infinitely variable.

  20. Show costs difference per month in the chart

    Currently the budget difference between one month to an other is not detailed enough in the chart. A very helpful extension could be rendering the difference as a percentage value between the bars in the chart.
