Hello, I am building an application for tracking cost details by unique records, with the azure cost management API. Specifically, I am using "generateCostDetailsReport?api-version=2023-11-01" in the post request to generate the cost details report. When retrieving the report from the response, I noticed that the column names are not the same as the documentation, which is an issue since the returned file is missing one of the unique record keys, ProductID. The documentation here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cost-management-billing/automate/understand-usage-details-fields lists that the ProductID field should be present, but the columns I get returned in the report are: InvoiceSectionName, AccountName, AccountOwnerId, SubscriptionId, SubscriptionName, ResourceGroup, ResourceLocation, Date, ProductName, MeterCategory, MeterSubCategory, MeterId, MeterName, MeterRegion, UnitOfMeasure, Quantity, EffectivePrice, CostInBillingCurrency, CostCenter, ConsumedService, ResourceId, Tags, OfferId, AdditionalInfo, ServiceInfo1, ServiceInfo2, ResourceName, ReservationId, ReservationName, UnitPrice, ProductOrderId, ProductOrderName, Term, PublisherType, PublisherName, ChargeType, Frequency, PricingModel, AvailabilityZone, BillingAccountId, BillingAccountName, BillingCurrencyCode, BillingPeriodStartDate, BillingPeriodEndDate, BillingProfileId, BillingProfileName, InvoiceSectionId, IsAzureCreditEligible, PartNumber, PayGPrice, PlanName, ServiceFamily, CostAllocationRuleName, benefitId, benefitName How can this be?

    @Wyatt Scott Thank you for posting your question on the Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to help!

    From the details you shared above, I understand that you are developing an application for tracking cost details by unique records, with the azure cost management API. You observed that the column names are not the same as the documentation,

    As per this doc https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cost-management-billing/automate/understand-usage-details-fields the ProductId is only available for MCA agreement type.

    With the available column you are getting, you are using EA agreement which does not have Productid

    Hope this answers your questions! Let us know if you have any further questions.
