I created an api management service in my azure free plan. According to the guidelines, the developer plan should cost a certain amount of cents per hour. The problem is that the service was active for a few months without generating costs, can you explain why?

    Certainly! According to the [Microsoft Azure API Management pricing page], the developer plan is free and allows up to three APIs with a maximum of 1,000 calls per day. The developer plan is intended for non-production use cases and evaluations. If you exceed the usage limits, you will be charged based on the [standard pricing tiers] It’s possible that your API Management service was active for a few months without generating costs because you were within the usage limits of the developer plan. However, if you have exceeded the usage limits, you will be charged based on the standard pricing tiers1. If you have any further questions or concerns, please let me know!
