Azure Key Vault Pricing Details RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    I've gone through the pricing details of Azure Key Vault, Which says US$ 0.030 per 10000 Operations. I need to know what are all the operations that includes in that 10000. If possible please mention the example transactions.

  • Thanks for reaching out! Operations against all keys (software-protected keys and HSM-protected keys), secrets, and certificates are billed at a flat rate of $0.03 per 10,000 operations, except certificate renewal requests, which are billed at a rate of $3 per renewal.


    A) You perform 2,000 operations with HSM-protected keys, 1,000 operations with software-protected keys, and 500 operations with secrets during a billing cycle. You will be billed for 3,500 operations during that billing cycle.

    B) In a given billing cycle, you perform 500 operations on 20 certificates, and 2 of these certificates are also renewed by Key Vault. You will be billed for 500 operations and 2 certificate renewal requests.

    Every successfully authenticated REST API call counts as one operation.

    Examples of operations for keys—create, import, get, list, backup, restore, delete, update, sign, verify, wrap, unwrap, encrypt and decrypt. Note that the price charged for an operation may vary based on the type of key (for example, operations performed on a 2048-bit RSA key vs a 4096-bit RSA key are billed against different meters with different prices. For more information, please refer this article.

    Examples of operations for secrets—create/update, get, list.

    Examples of operations for certificates—create, update policy, contacts, import, renewal or update of certificates. Note that a certificate renewal operation has a separate cost from all other operations on certificates.

    Hope this helps!
