Microsoft Azure Configuration — Enterprise Agreement (EA) Cost Data

Introduction

For CloudCheckr to have the ability to report on cost data from your Azure Enterprise Agreement account you need to obtain both an Enrollment Number and Access Token from Azure.  Those two values will be added into CloudCheckr and used to retrieve the needed billing data to populate your cost reports.

 

Log Into the Azure Enterprise Portal

Both the Enrollment Number and Access Token can be retrieved from within the Azure Enterprise Portal.

You can login to the portal here: https://ea.azure.com

 

Obtaining the Enrollment Number

The Enrollment Number can be found within the Manage section of the Enterprise Portal.

To retrieve your Enrollment Number, click Manage on the left-hand side of the Enterprise Portal.

Copy the Enrollment Number and save it, as you will need this to add to CloudCheckr later.

 

Obtaining the Access Token

The Access Token can be found within the Reports section of the Enterprise Portal. Click the Reports menu on the left-hand side of the Enterprise Portal.

Within the Reports menu, at the top of the screen, click on the Download Usage link.

In the Download Usage page, click on the API Access Key option. You can use either the Primary Key or the Secondary Key. Whichever you choose copy and save the Key.  This will act as the Access Token in CloudCheckr.

 

Adding an Account in CloudCheckr

Next, login to your CloudCheckr account at https://app.cloudcheckr.com.
