Azure Cost Insights
It's easy to get your Azure Costs out of control. Wouldn't it be great to get insights of your infrastructure spending in your daily routine?
Costs are a concern of everyone, developers, product owners and operations. They come together in Azure DevOps, so why not show these insights there?
Azure Cost Insights is a widget that you can put on your Azure DevOps Dashboard.
You might figure it out but save some time and read the Getting Started because it has some useful tips! For example: you need to create an Azure Pipeline for the widget to work which is going to download and host your cost-data, used by the widget.
If you wonder why this widget needs an Azure Pipeline, read the 4 good reasons for 'why the need of a pipeline' here.
Everyone can use this widget, the first widget is free! If you're exicted about the product you can try out the basic, pro and enterprise plan one month for free.
You can upgrade your 'free' plan by navigating to: 'Organization Settings' (bottom left corner in Azure DevOps) > 'Extensions' > 'Azure Cost Insights'.
