Migrate from EA Price Sheet API

EA customers who were previously using the Enterprise Reporting consumption.azure.com API to get their price sheet need to migrate to a replacement Azure Resource Manager API. The following instructions help you migrate and they also describe any contract differences between the old API and the new API.


All Azure Enterprise Reporting APIs are retired. You should Migrate to Microsoft Cost Management APIs as soon as possible.

Assign permissions to a service principal to call the API

Before calling the API, you need to configure a service principal (SPN) with the correct permission. You use the service principal to call the API. For more information, see Assign permissions to Cost Management APIs.

Call the Price Sheet API

The Price Sheet API generates the price sheet asynchronously and produces a file that you download.

Use the following request URIs when calling the new Price Sheet API:

Supported requests

You can call the API using the following scope:

Enrollment: providers/Microsoft.Billing/billingAccounts/{billingAccountId}

Download by billing account for the specified billing period

POST https://management.azure.com/providers/Microsoft.Billing/billingAccounts/{billingAccountId}/billingPeriods/{billingPeriodName}/providers/Microsoft.CostManagement/pricesheets/default/download?api-version=2023-11-01

The POST request returns a location to poll the report generation status as outlined in the following response:

The price sheet properties are as follows:

Name Type Description
basePrice string The unit price at the time the customer signs on or the unit price at the time of service meter GA launch if it is after sign-on.

It applies to Enterprise Agreement users
currencyCode string Currency in which the Enterprise Agreement was signed
effectiveEndDate string Effective end date of the Price Sheet billing period
effectiveStartDate string Effective start date of the Price Sheet billing period
enrollmentNumber string Unique identifier for the EA billing account.
includedQuantity string Quantities of a specific service to which an EA customer is entitled to consume without incremental charges.
marketPrice string The current list price for a given product or service. This price is without any negotiations and is based on your Microsoft Agreement type.

For PriceType Consumption, market price is reflected as the pay-as-you-go price.

For PriceType Savings Plan, market price reflects the Savings plan benefit on top of pay-as-you-go price for the corresponding commitment term.

For PriceType ReservedInstance, market price reflects the total price of the one or three-year commitment.

Note: For EA customers with no negotiations, market price might appear rounded to a different decimal precision than unit price.
meterCategory string Name of the classification category for the meter. For example, Cloud services, Networking, etc.
meterId string Unique identifier of the meter
meterName string Name of the meter. The meter represents the deployable resource of an Azure service.
meterRegion string Name of the Azure region where the meter for the service is available.
meterSubCategory string Name of the meter subclassification category.
meterType string Name of the meter type
partNumber string Part number associated with the meter
priceType string Price type for a product. For example, an Azure resource with a pay-as-you-go rate with priceType as Consumption. Other price types include ReservedInstance and Savings Plan.
product string Name of the product accruing the charges.
productId string Unique identifier for the product whose meter is consumed.
serviceFamily number Type of Azure service. For example, Compute, Analytics, and Security.
skuId string Unique identifier of the SKU
term string Term length for Azure Savings Plan or Reservation term – one year or three years (P1Y or P3Y)
unitOfMeasure string How usage is measured for the service
unitPrice string The per-unit price at the time of billing for a given product or service, inclusive of any negotiated discounts on top of the market price.

For PriceType ReservedInstance, unit price reflects the total cost of the one or three-year commitment including discounts.

Note: The unit price isn't the same as the effective price in usage details downloads when services have differential prices across tiers.

If services are multi-tiered pricing, the effective price is a blended rate across the tiers and doesn't show a tier-specific unit price. The blended price or effective price is the net price for the consumed quantity spanning across the multiple tiers (where each tier has a specific unit price).
