SubResource

Name Description Value
id Resource Id string

BillingProfile

Name Description Value
maxPrice Specifies the maximum price you are willing to pay for a Azure Spot VM/VMSS. This price is in US Dollars.

This price will be compared with the current Azure Spot price for the VM size. Also, the prices are compared at the time of create/update of Azure Spot VM/VMSS and the operation will only succeed if the maxPrice is greater than the current Azure Spot price.

The maxPrice will also be used for evicting a Azure Spot VM/VMSS if the current Azure Spot price goes beyond the maxPrice after creation of VM/VMSS.

Possible values are:

- Any decimal value greater than zero. Example: 0.01538

-1 – indicates default price to be up-to on-demand.

You can set the maxPrice to -1 to indicate that the Azure Spot VM/VMSS should not be evicted for price reasons. Also, the default max price is -1 if it is not provided by you.

Name Description Value
vmSize Specifies the size of the virtual machine.

The enum data type is currently deprecated and will be removed by December 23rd 2023.

Recommended way to get the list of available sizes is using these APIs:

List all available virtual machine sizes in an availability set

List all available virtual machine sizes in a region

List all available virtual machine sizes for resizing. For more information about virtual machine sizes, see Sizes for virtual machines.

The available VM sizes depend on region and availability set.
