Few days ago, I posted an article on How to setup Azure VM in Azure DevTest Labs. Since then, Microsoft has enhanced this service and have released a “Cost Threshold” feature on March 30th. This will now stop you from situations like “I’ve used Azure too much this month!” by setting the cost threshold before hand.



Go to Azure Portal and select “DevTest Labs”


Go to “Settings” and select  “Cost Threshold”


Set “Enabled” to “ON” to enable this feature.

Estimations will take around 24 hours until it is displayed here.
