Track your Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC)

The Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC) is a contractual commitment that your organization may have made to Microsoft Azure spend over time. If your organization has a MACC for a Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCA) billing account, you can check important aspects of your commitment, including start and end dates, remaining commitment, and eligible spend in the Azure portal or through REST APIs. MACC or CTC for Enterprise Agreement (EA) billing accounts aren't yet available in the Azure portal or through REST APIs.

Track your MACC Commitment

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Search for Cost Management + Billing.

  3. In the billing scopes page, select the billing account for which you want to track the commitment. The billing account should be of type Microsoft Customer Agreement.

    Note

    Azure portal remembers the last billing scope that you access and displays the scope the next time you come to Cost Management + Billing page. You won't see the billing scopes page if you have visited Cost Management + Billing earlier. If so, check that you are in the right scope. If not, switch the scope to select the billing account for a Microsoft Customer Agreement.

  4. Select Properties from the left-hand side and then select Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC).

Your MACC can have one of the following statutes:

  • Active: MACC is active. Any eligible spend will contribute towards your MACC commitment.
  • Completed: You’ve completed your MACC commitment.
  • Expired: MACC is expired. Contact your Microsoft Account team for more information.
  • Canceled: MACC is canceled. New Azure spend won't contribute towards your MACC commitment.

The Events section displays events (invoiced spend) that decremented your MACC commitment.

Date The date when the event happened
Description A description of the event
Billing profile The billing profile for which the event happened
MACC decrement The amount of MACC decrement from the event
Remaining commitment The remaining MACC commitment after the event

Azure Services and Marketplace offers that are eligible for MACC

You can determine which Azure services and Marketplace offers are eligible for MACC decrement in the Azure portal. For more information, see Determine which offers are eligible for Azure consumption commitments (MACC/CtC).

Azure credits and MACC

If your organization received Azure credits from Microsoft, the consumption or purchases that are covered by credits won't contribute towards your MACC commitment.

If your organization purchased Azure Prepayment, the consumption or purchases that are covered by credits won't contribute towards your MACC commitment. However, the actual Prepayment purchase itself will decrement your MACC commitment.

For example, Contoso made a MACC commitment of $50,000 in May. In June, they purchased an Azure Prepayment of $10,000. The purchase will decrement their MACC commitment and the remaining commitment will be $40,000. In June, Contoso consumed $10,000 of Azure Prepayment-eligible services. The service charges will be covered by their Azure Prepayment; however, the service charges won’t decrement their MACC commitment. Once the Azure Prepayment is fully used, all Azure service consumption and other eligible purchases will decrement their MACC commitment.

Check access to a Microsoft Customer Agreement

Check the agreement type to determine whether you have access to a billing account for a Microsoft Customer Agreement.

  1. Go to the Azure portal to check for billing account access. Search for and select Cost Management + Billing.

  3. If you have access to multiple billing scopes, check the type in the billing account column. You have access to a billing account for a Microsoft Customer Agreement if the billing account type for any of the scopes is Microsoft Customer Agreement.
