Azure Billing Reader role and preview of Invoice API

Community Manager

Today, we are pleased to announce the addition of a new in-built role, Billing Reader role. The new Billing Reader role allows you to delegate access to just billing information with no access to services such as VMs and storage accounts. Users in this role can perform Azure billing management operations such as viewing subscription scoped cost reporting data and downloading invoices. Also, today we are releasing the public preview of a new billing API that will allow you to programmatically download subscription’s billing invoices.


Today, only the account administrator for a subscription can download and view invoices. Now the account administrator can allow users in subscription scoped roles, Owner, Contributor, Reader, User Access Administrator, Billing Reader, Service Administrator and Co-Administrator, to view invoices. The invoice contains personal information and hence the account administrator is required to enable access to allow users in subscription scoped roles to view invoices.
