Azure Billing Monitoring Setup

Last updated on 03 April, 2023

LogicMonitor leverages the Cost Management API to monitor Microsoft Azure billing data. You can set up the monitoring for Azure billing by entering your Microsoft Azure Subscription ID in LogicMonitor. For more information, see What is Microsoft Cost Management and Billing?

Note: LogicMonitor does not support the Azure Rate Card API. Use the Cost Management API and the related LogicMonitor Cost Management DataSources.

Setting up Monitoring for Azure Billing

  1. Install the Azure Billing DataSources. For more information, see Azure Billing Modules.
  2. Navigate to Resources > Azure Cloud > Manage.
  3. Select the Billing tab.

  4. Select a Country to apply the currency that you want to use.
  5. In the SubscriptionId field, enter your Azure Subscription ID. This information is located in your Azure portal under Subscriptions.
  6. Select Save.

Note: For Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) subscriptions, Cost Management access must be enabled by your CSP partner. If you can access Cost Management for the subscription in your Azure portal, that means that Cost Management has already been enabled by your CSP.
