Azure - Tracking Costs Associated with an Azure Subscription

Azure - Tracking Costs Associated with an Azure Subscription

Customers can track their Azure usage and view their estimated bill using the Microsoft Azure Portal by searching for Cost Management + Billing.

UW-Madison (Enterprise Agreement) Azure subscriptions do not support monthly billing alerts. Subscriptions can, however, have a yearly spending quota assigned to them. Once a spending quota is assigned, an email will be sent to account owners once charges associated with the account reach 50%, 75%, 90%, and 100% of the spending quota. Spending quota notifications are not generated in realtime, can be up to 3 days behind actual usage, are only an estimate, and only exist for notification purposes. Spending quotas will not prevent those quotas from being exceeded in Azure. To have a spending quota assigned to your subscription, please contact us at

Customers can use the Azure Advisor to identify opportunities to reduce overall Azure spend. Additional details can be found in the Introduction to Azure Advisor.

Please note that the usage and bill details at are only an estimate.

To change UW Billing information (D# and/or UDDS code) for your account, email with the account id and the new information.
