Tags from Virtual Machines not available for filtering RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    i put a process in place that creates Virtual Machines in the Microsoft Azure DevTest Lab from a ARM-Template.

    The template contains Tags for the VM created but the Tags are not available for filtering in the Cost Analysis of the Resource Group and neither in the Cost Analysis for the Subscription.

    The Tags are visible on the Virtual Machine after creation but only when accessing the VM through the DevTest Lab not when accessing it through the menu point "Virtual Machines"

    Any Ideas whats causing this or any ideas for workarounds?

  • Tags for resources are different than tags for resource groups. You would need to explicitly add tags for the resource groups too in the template on creation, or enforce with Azure Policy. Will also need to retroactively add to any existing RGs.

  • I just found the matching documentation.

    Sorry for the work.

    For anyone in the Future here is the link and quote:

    "Most Azure resources support tagging. However, some tags aren't available in Cost Management and billing. Additionally, resource group tags aren't supported. Cost Management only supports resource tags from the date the tags are applied directly to the resource. Watch the How to review tag policies with Azure Cost Management video to learn about using Azure tag policy to improve cost data visibility."
