View Azure reservations in the Azure portal

Depending on your subscription type and permissions, there are a couple of ways to view reservations for Azure.

View purchased reservations

By default, when you buy a reservation, you and the account administrator can view the 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.

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

To view a reservation as an Owner or Reader,

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Search for Reservations. Screenshot that shows Azure portal search
  3. The list shows all the reservations where you have the Owner or Reader role. Each reservation shows the last known utilization percentage.
