View or upgrade a SKU

This article helps you view and upgrade Azure Bastion from the Basic SKU tier to the Standard SKU tier. Once you upgrade, you can't revert back to the Basic SKU without deleting and reconfiguring Bastion. For more information about features and SKUs, see Configuration settings.

Hourly pricing starts from the moment Bastion is deployed, regardless of outbound data usage. For more information, see Pricing and SKUs. If you're deploying Bastion as part of a tutorial or test, we recommend that you delete this resource once you've finished using it.

View a SKU

To view the SKU for your bastion host, use the following steps.

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.

  2. In the Azure portal, go to your bastion host.

  3. In the left pane, select Configuration to open the Configuration page. In the following example, Bastion is configured to use the Basic SKU tier.

    Notice that when you use the Basic SKU, the features you can configure are limited. You can upgrade to a higher SKU using the steps in the next section.

Upgrade a SKU

Use the following steps to upgrade to the Standard SKU.

  1. In the Azure portal, go to your Bastion host.

  2. On the Configuration page, for Tier, select Standard.

  3. You can add features at the same time you upgrade the SKU. You don't need to upgrade the SKU and then go back to add the features as a separate step.

  4. Select Apply to apply changes. The bastion host updates. This takes about 10 minutes to complete.
