After you add an Azure cloud account, you can view your Azure expense details on the Azure Dashboard. VMware Cloud services pull the data from your Azure bills for display in the Cost Insight service.


If you are viewing the expense information on a day past 15th of a month, you see the current month data. If you are viewing expense before 15th (dates between 01 and 15), you see the previous month data.

On the Azure dashboard, you see the monthly expense, total number of accounts and virtual machines.

You can see the daily expense based on cost center with additional charges or discounts such as tax, fees, discounts, or refunds. You can hover the mouse on each bar of the graph to see the actual expense values.

Additionally, Cost Insight can categorize expense information based on services, regions, and daily Azure virtual machine usage.

You can click on any of widgets to navigate to the Cost Analysis page directly to view the specific expense details.
