This article covers the process of adding Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) account to Turbonomic v6.4 and higher.
Adding Microsoft EA account to Turbonomic allows it to connect to your EA Azure Rate Card and retrieve your actual Azure prices (post discount) as well as to manage Azure Reserved VM Instances (RIs) owned by the account.
Please note that after (or before) adding your EA account to Turbonomic, you will also need to add an Azure Target to allow Turbonomic to connect to the subscriptions you wish to manage. To add Azure Target to Turbonomic please follow this article for Azure Portal or this article for Azure CLI.
To add an EA Account to Turbonomic you will need to obtain:
- Your Azure EA Enrollment Number
- Azure EA API Key
This guide assumes you have EA Admin level or equivalent access to https://ea.azure.com
Important: Please ensure that "DA View Charges" and "AO View Charges" have been enabled in the EA Portal (located under 'Manage'):
If you just enabled these settings, note it will take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect.
