Reports are created using Power BI premium. Reports are synchronized every 24 hours. An Azure spending limit can be set by logging into the Microsoft Partner Center.
Azure cost reports give an overview of your costs per Azure resource. The costs per resource is calculated based on total Azure usage and the total price in the Microsoft invoice. Azure usage charges are always billed over the previous month. Which means that the data is not real-time and is updated once per month, on the Microsoft invoice date. If there is no invoice or usage data available, the information shown in the report will not be representative.
