View Azure reservations

You can view and manage the purchased reservation from the Azure portal.

Permissions to view a reservation

To view or manage a reservation, you need to have reader or owner permission on it. By default, when you buy a reservation, you and the account administrator automatically get the Owner role on the reservation order and reservation. To allow other people to view the reservation, you must add them as an Owner or Reader on the Reservation order or reservation. Adding someone to the subscription that's provided for billing the reservation, does not add them to reservation automatically.

For more information, see Add or change users who can manage a reservation.
