Azure Cost Monitor announces customer url feature aka buckets

The Azure Cost Monitor Team is happy to announce the launch of the new customer url feature starting today.

Now, users are able to create as many customer urls for their team as required. These customer urls are called buckets in the Azure Cost Monitor because the system can connect different information and actions with an bucket. Whenever a user visits the Azure Cost Monitor with the generated bucket url the system triggers the preferred sign-in workflow, e.g. Azure Active Directory. In addition the system applies the configured branding, so that every end user gets the same unique experience.


How to get started?
Adding a new bucket to the Azure Cost Monitor is that simple:

  1. Log In to the Azure Cost Monitor Dashboard and if you don’t have a team account migrate to a team:

    team-02-migrate-team

  2. Select the “Buckets” button to open the bucket management view:

    buckets

  3. Add or remove buckets in this overview

    buckets2

    Tip: Every team has a default bucket which is the same as the team id and can be used directly when no custom bucket is created.


Interested in the “customer url – feature”?

The new feature integrates the Azure Cost Monitor more seamless into existing IT service infrastructures and increases the end user experience of your team members and co-workers.

Try the new feature today by simply logging into your Azure Cost Monitor enterprise account. If you don’t have an enterprise subscription, try it for free for a certain time, as we are currently in the technical preview phase.
