Update a customer's usage spending budget

Applies To

  • Partner Center
  • Partner Center for Microsoft Cloud Germany
  • Partner Center for Microsoft Cloud for US Government

Update the spending budget allocated for a customer's usage.


  • Credentials as described in Partner Center authentication. This scenario supports authentication with both standalone App and App+User credentials.
  • A customer ID (customer-tenant-id). If you do not have a customer's ID, you can look up the ID in Partner Center by choosing the customer from the customers list, selecting Account, then saving their Microsoft ID.


To update a customer's usage spending budget, first create a new SpendingBudget object with the updated amount. Then use the IAggregatePartner.Customers collection and call the ById() method with the specified customer's ID. Then access the UsageBudget property and pass the updated usage budget to the Patch() or PatchAsync() method.

// IAggregatePartner partnerOperations;
// string selectedCustomerId;

// Create a new spending budget with the udpated amount.
var newUsageBudget = new SpendingBudget()
    Amount = 100

// Update the customer's usage budget.
var usageBudget = partnerOperations.Customers.ById(selectedCustomerId).UsageBudget.Patch(newUsageBudget);
