Azure DevTest Labs: Custom cost-tracking time range and cost threshold notification

1. august 2016

Azure DevTest Labs now supports more cost-management capabilities in Lab cost trend, including:

  • Custom cost-tracking time range: You can specify a custom time range for the DevTest Labs cost-trending chart. You can set the custom time range based on your project start/end date to get a sense of the project spending, or any custom range where you want to visualize spending and projection.
  • Specify actions for cost threshold: In addition to setting a total cost target and visualizing the target on the cost-trending chart, you an use DevTest Labs to specify actions on a threshold at 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%, or 125%.
    •  Visualize the cost thresholds on the chart:

  • Send notifications when a particular threshold is met by specifying a webhook URL:

You configure these settings through the Manage target blade in Lab cost trend. Select a threshold percentage from the list, and then you can set whether to show the selected percentage on the cost-trending chart or get a notification through the specified webhook URL:
