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.
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.
