Permissions needed for Cost Management Application

Dennes Torres 1 Reputation point MVP


According to this documentation - I need the Enterprise Administrator role in order to install and use the Azure Cost Management App in PowerBI.

What about companies which doesn't have the Enterprise Agreement?

I tried to make the installation using my account with Cost Management Reader and Billing Reader for the subscription, but it fails with the error "Failed to update data source credentials: The user does not have any claims associated" . How can I solve this problem? What are the minimum roles I really need in order to install and user this app ?

Kind Regards,

    Hello @Dennes Torres ,

    At this time, Power BI App for Cost Management supports only customer's with an Enterprise Agreement.
    The feature owners are actively considering expanding support to non EA customers but no definitive timeline to share at this time.

    Please note: Cost Managment supports custom cost views and visualizations that may meet your immediate business needs.
    Dont hesitate to reply if there is a specific reporting/visualization query we can help with.

    Hope this helps.
