Customer wants to be informed which Azure Reserved Instances are not visible to the Turbo Azure Service Principal. This leads to improved cost information on savings.
See IBM Case TS011934194. In the discount inventory report available under Cloud, the column cost savings is wrongly indicated. Instead of calculating the savings by subtracting the PAYGO rate minus the 3 year RI reserved rate, the report is showing the PAYGO rate. Engineering says this is due to the TURBO Azure Service Principal NOT being able to see the RI and the RI Order. The customer says why doesn't turbo automatically tell you which RIs are not visible - just like the Azure Billing Target gives sophisticated error messages about what's wrong.
Suggest that in the Azure Service Principal Target we add additional comments "Please give the Azure Service Principal read access to the following RI and RI orders. We know they exist because we can see them in the Azure Billing Target." We can have this alert come up in the notification center for that target.
The customer would then work with their automation to update the permissions on those RIs to give Turbo visibility.
