Management groups - Azure Cost Analysis Based on Scope Configuration

In Azure Cost Analysis, when viewing AccumulatedCosts with the scope set to a subscription, all date range filters, such as "Last three months," are accessible. However, when the scope is switched to a management group, only "Last seven days," "Last 30 days," "This month," and "Last month" filters are accessible, while others are disabled.

I need assistance of why this happens and if there is a formal explanation for this. (Please see attached image)

    Hello @Ortega, Ivan Thanks once again for sharing the details and the screenshot. For management group scopes, currently we only support 1 month at a time or 30 days for the custom date range.

    We have no timeline for when we will support more than that. This has been confirmed by the product group PM.

    Appreciate if you could share your valuable feedback through this forum - https://feedback.azure.com/d365community/forum/748a4eaa-0e25-ec11-b6e6-000d3a4f07b8?query=credit so that you get traction from the product team and hopefully the feature will be prioritized for the future release.

    Thanks for your understanding!

    Ortega, Ivan,

    When you switch the scope to a management group, the level of detail in the cost data is reduced. This is because management groups are designed to provide a high-level overview of costs across multiple subscriptions. As a result, Azure limits the date range filters to “Last seven days,” “Last 30 days,” “This month,” and “Last month” to ensure the accuracy and performance of the cost analysis. This is a design decision made by Microsoft to balance the need for detailed cost analysis with performance considerations.
