Reporting APIs for Enterprise customers - Balance and Summary


Microsoft no longer updates the Enterprise Reporting APIs. Instead, you should use Azure Consumption APIs. The Azure Billing - Balance and Summary API is replaced by the Azure Consumption - Balances API.

The Balance and Summary API offers a monthly summary of information on balances, new purchases, Azure Marketplace service charges, adjustments, and overage charges.


Common header properties that need to be added are specified in the Overview of Reporting APIs for Enterprise customers article. If a billing period isn't specified, then data for the current billing period is returned.

Method Request URI


To use the previous version of the API, replace v3 with v2 in the URLs above. Some fields aren't available if you use v2.
