    Hi Kyle Jung

    Thanks for your question.

    As per this stack overflow thread,

    It's possible to create a budget inside Azure, whereby you can get an email if the costs get to e.g. 90% of your the amount you want to spend pr. month. This way you can manually shut down services inside Azure. Just go to Azue portal > Cost Management + Billing > Budget > Add > fill in relevant info.

    Please check if this helps in your scenario too.

    Let us know if you need any additional information.

    Thank you!

    @Kyle Jung Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A forum, Thanks for posting your question.

    You can set up a block when the usage limit is exceeded, you can create an alert rule in Azure Monitor email alerts triggered to trigger when the usage limit is exceeded, and then configure an action to block further usage. You can also set up an email notification to be sent when the alert is triggered. however, If you want to avoid being charged for additional usage, you can stop the resource after usage. Stopping a resource will temporarily halt the resource and you will not be charged for the stopped resource.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
