Rocky Mondal 86 Reputation points

We are using VM (Plan Standard B4ms) and we have configured reservation for this VM. we have observer in invoice VM (Standard B4ms) cost charged is showing zero. only charged Disk, Disk operations, IP, data transfer out.
We have configured reservation Billing frequency monthly basis. When check payments tab in reservation order it's showing no payment history and no upcoming payments.

I want to know, is Invoice correct? Because of reservation for 1 year VM cost is zero? please suggest.

    The reservation covers the compute cost of the Virtual Machine so you will still incur storage costs for your disk and data transfer and licensing (if applicable). Your VM compute cost should be zero assuming the reservation covers this in full so this sounds correct to me.

    You should have a separate charge for the monthly reservation payment. Can you check the reservation transactions section within cost management.
