Hi,

Based on the pricing for Key Vault, encryption/decryption operations via API are charged. My question is, does this also imply cost for PostgreSQL DBaaS using custom encryption keys stored in Azure Key Vault or the cost for encrypting/decrypting database blocks are already covered by the cost of the database instance itself?

Thanks!

    Hello José Luis Rando Calvo,

    Thanks for your question.

    It implies a seperate cost for the encryption/decryption operations happening through Azure Key Vault APIs.
    See below for detailed pricing:
