Tenant resource usage API reference

A tenant can use the tenant APIs to view the tenant's own resource usage data. These APIs are consistent with the Azure usage APIs.

You can use the Windows PowerShell cmdlet Get-UsageAggregates to get usage data, just like in Azure.

API call


The request gets consumption details for the requested subscriptions and for the requested time frame. There is no request body.

Method Request URI
GET https://{armendpoint}/subscriptions/{subId}/providers/Microsoft.Commerce/usageAggregates?reportedStartTime={reportedStartTime}&reportedEndTime={reportedEndTime}&aggregationGranularity={granularity}&api-version=2015-06-01-preview&continuationToken={token-value}


Parameter Description
Armendpoint Azure Resource Manager endpoint of your Azure Stack Hub environment. The Azure Stack Hub convention is that the name of Azure Resource Manager endpoint is in the format https://management.{domain-name}. For example, for the development kit, the domain name is local.azurestack.external, then the Resource Manager endpoint is https://management.local.azurestack.external.
subId Subscription ID of the user who is making the call. You can use this API only to query for a single subscription's usage. Providers can use the provider resource usage API to query usage for all tenants.
reportedStartTime Start time of the query. The value for DateTime should be in UTC and at the beginning of the hour; for example, 13:00. For daily aggregation, set this value to UTC midnight. The format is escaped ISO 8601; for example, 2015-06-16T18%3a53%3a11%2b00%3a00Z, where colon is escaped to %3a and plus is escaped to %2b so that it's URI friendly.
reportedEndTime End time of the query. The constraints that apply to reportedStartTime also apply to this parameter. The value for reportedEndTime can't be in the future.
aggregationGranularity Optional parameter that has two discrete potential values: daily and hourly. As the values suggest, one returns the data in daily granularity, and the other is an hourly resolution. The daily option is the default.
api-version Version of the protocol that's used to make this request. You must use 2015-06-01-preview.
continuationToken Token retrieved from the last call to the usage API provider. This token is needed when a response is greater than 1,000 lines. It acts as a bookmark for progress. If not present, the data is retrieved from the beginning of the day or hour, based on the granularity passed in.
