Azure MCA Billing Sources

When using Azure Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCA) billing sources, Kion uses exports and Azure storage accounts to access your billing data. Exporting MCA billing data to an Azure storage account simplifies management, allowing Kion to work with any billing profile hierarchy and any billing account type.

Once Kion is installed in your environment, you need to create an app registration to manage your Azure resources in Kion and set up a storage account to export your billing data to. Then, create an Azure MCA billing source in Kion.

We support Azure MCA for both gov and commercial account types.
