**The 16 vCore-hours of free scanning are only available for customers on the Pay-As-You-Go (MS-AZR-0003P), Microsoft Azure Enterprise (MS-AZR-0017P), Microsoft Azure Plan (MS-AZR-0017G), Azure in CSP (MS-AZR-0145P), and Enterprise Dev/Test (MS-AZR-0148P) offer types. Free quantities are applied at the enrollment level for enterprise customers. Free quantities are applied at the subscription level for pay-as-you-go customers. Note: Azure Purview provisions a storage account and an Azure Event Hubs account as managed resources. This may incur separate charges that in most cases will not exceed 2% of charges for scanning. Refer to the Managed Resources section in the Azure portal within Azure Purview Resource JSON.

Note:

Be aware if you add a lot of Azure Data Sources and scan them every day, you will quickly reach the number of hours. Choose for weekly or manual scans will be my advice.

    Hi Erwin,
    Thank you for this nice heads-up. Indeed, we began being billed from 21 onwards and not even our contact CSA at Microsoft was able to find the annoncement you just did. Did you receive this information by email maybe?
    We are for the moment just testing Purview, we have very few and very small data sources. Yet, we are being charged a fair amount (~25€) per day, despite not running any scans and not even touching the studio during the last days.
    We do have an “external connection” to a Data Factory, which is, again, just a test. The Data Factory holds little data and no pipelines have been run lately. Is this connection being scanned so often that it exceeds the free hours?
    My guess is that Microsoft is billing the Capacity Units then. But I don’t quite understand how do they work or what operations “consume” capacity units on an idle Purview account. Our platform size is 4 Capacity Units, which we thought would make it free until end of February.
    Any hints would be helpful, even our friends at Microsoft struggle to find an explanation.
    Best,
    Luis

      Thanks for getting back to me.
      I think the billing announcement was on the website but I also received an email from it. Indeed the costs are very strange. We consume an average of 60 euros per day. Have also asked this question to the Product Team and they are now investigating it. I’ll let you know as soon as I have an answer.
      I’m struggling also with the pricing.
