Azure Cost Mgmt App - possible bug?

Hi all!

 

I'm having an issue with the Azure Cost Management App from Microsoft. It's connected to real data and seem to work just fine, but for some reason the cards on the overview page doesn't react to any filters. The graph seen below respects the date and other filters set, but the cards remain the same. My first thought was that they could be Year-To-Date, but the numbers doesn't match the graph when viewing the YTD.

 

It is also not quite clear to me what the various cards represent; can someone please clarify them for me? I think I understand some of them, with my attempt at describing them just below:

 

  • Charges against credits are charges made against existing credits
  • Total charges are the total charges billed by Microsoft, ie the sum of all the other cards.
  • Azure Marketplace are anything bought from the marketplace
  • Service Overage are charges not covered by credits, new purchases or the marketplace.

Picture below is from the template app with dummy data just to illustrate which graph and cards I'm a bit puzzled about.

Hi @chrisha ,

 

We can see that there is no date field in Balance summary table. Then I exported the virtual data for Balance summary table from the template app and found that it only had one row of data. Therefore, I think the data in this table will not be affected by the date slicer. It is only updated when the data source is refershed.

If you have an account, you can try connecting to Azure Cost Management using Power BI Desktop and view the model.

 

If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information or the expected result you expect. Let me know immediately, looking forward to your reply.

Hi @chrisha ,

 

The page shows a monthly summary of the balance for Enterprise Agreements (EA). That is, the Account overview offers a summary of all usage and purchases as well as your credit balance to help you track monthly expenses. 

 

You can refer to this documentation to understand your Azure Enterprise Agreement bill:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cost-management-billing/understand/review-enterprise-agreemen...

So the cards below the graph will only show me month-to-date? Is this by design, or is it a bug? If I set a date filter the graph is filtered accordingly, and you look at the filters affecting the cards you'll see that they claim to be affected by the date filter. However, nothing changes, and I still only see this month-to-date regardless of which time range I have selected.

That would explain it. Is it possible to get the documentation updated so that it specifically says that the cards are month-to-date while the graph is viewed according to the filter?

 

Also, the Cost Mgmt Power BI App says that it is possible to download it, but this no longer seems to be possible. Can you confirm one or the other?
