Azure marketplace charges are now available in Azure Cost Management for pay-as-you-go customers!
Posted on 29 July 2019
We are excited to announce a preview release of Azure marketplace charges within our Cost Analysis tool for pay-as-you-go customers. As part of this preview, you can now analyse your marketplace charges alongside your Azure service charges within Cost Analysis and reconcile your Azure marketplace invoice using both Cost Analysis and a new usage csv download API.
Analyse marketplace charges together with Azure Services
With this preview release, we are introducing a new property in Cost Analysis called “Publisher type”, which will allow you to group and/or filter your charges based on Azure versus marketplace charges. Please note that these charges may have different billing cycles so make sure that you select a calendar date view within the date picker when analysing Azure services and marketplace together.
Analyse marketplace charges to reconcile your invoice
Marketplace invoice view within Cost Analysis
Customers who have purchased marketplace resources will receive a separate invoice for these charges. To facilitate proper analysis of these invoices, we have added a marketplace invoice view within the date picker. Use this to analyse the charges for a given invoice.
Marketplace usage csv download API
This preview includes a new API that allows you to download a CSV of all of your consumption-based marketplace charges for a given invoice. To learn more about how to use this API, please visit the Azure REST API specs Swagger. To learn more about programming on top of Azure Cost Management, please visit the Cost Management and Consumption specs Swaggers.
Unified cost dimensions across Azure Service and Marketplace
As part of this release, your Cost Management data has now been consolidated into a unified set of cost dimensions that you can utilise across both Azure Services and Marketplace. This unification is what makes it possible for you to analyse your Azure Services and marketplace charges together. To learn more about the changes that have occurred to facilitate unification, please visit our documentation found here.
