Cloud Cruiser became HPE Consumption Analytics on Nov. 1st. You'll still see the old name in places while we update this site.

Allowing tenants to view their costs

Table of contents
No headers

In addition to the views of costs for all tenants available in the Windows Azure Pack management portal for administrators, you can also enable tenants to view their own costs in the management portal for tenants. This visibility can often encourage tenants to use cloud services more judiciously.

A tenant can only see costs for their own account, not for any other tenants.

Before you begin

You must enable viewing in the management portal for administrators as described in Displaying costs in Windows Azure Pack.

To allow tenants to view costs

  1. If you have not yet installed Cloud Cruiser for Windows Azure Pack: Tenant Site Extension on your Windows Azure Pack tenant site, install it now.
    Use the Microsoft Web Platform Installer on your tenant site machine. Cloud Cruiser for Windows Azure Pack: Tenant Site Extension is in the Products list.
  2. In your browser, log in to the management portal for administrators.
  3. Click Plans to view a list of plans.
  4. For any plan whose tenants you want to be able to view costs, double-click the plan, then click Add Service.
  5. Select the Cloud Cruiser service, then click the check-mark button to save the new service.
    Leave the default Instance selection.
  6. Repeat this procedure for each plan whose tenants you want to be able to view costs.

Tenants of the plans you modified can now view their costs from the My Costs menu item available in the navigation pane of the management portal for tenants. Online help is available from within My Costs.

If after performing this procedure you click the Cloud Cruiser service in the Plan Services list of any plan, you receive the message Failed to load configuration for service 'Cloud Cruiser'. This is normal. There is nothing to configure for this service, so the message does not indicate that anything is wrong.
