  • It is possible to create Budgets and assign to only a resource group

    Thresholds can be set and actions triggered from those alerts

    Example:

    Budget of $1500 per month, resets every month

    75% threshold can trigger an action group, may want to email an alert at this point

    100% threshold can trigger an action group that may have an automation runbook, webhook or function app assigned to stop the application or other relevant task

    The action groups in the above example can be configured within Azure monitor > Alerts > Manage Actions
