    But also these tags are possible:

Subscription upgrade details in Cloudmore billing reports

  • Our billing reports received a couple of governance improvements.

    Now it will be easier to track the NCE seat-based subscription and product name before and after an upgrade throughout the historic billing data.

    • We will show both the SKU name and the subscription friendly name in the General billing report. Historic friendly name is shown when looking at the historic billing.

    • We added the ‘Product name’ column to the General billing report UI, so you can easily identify the product for the ‘convert’ billing lines.

    • If you have to make any changes to the product prices retrospectively, the subscriptions will pick up these prices and display them correctly in historic billing reports.

Admin relationship event logs and expired statuses

1. We will keep the expired admin relationship records in the list for 30 days. It will help you get more visibility in case you missed a GDAP relationship expiration date, so you can create another one with the same details if needed.

2. Event logs were added for the following GDAP actions on the Admin relationships page:

  • Terminate relationship
  • Enable auto-extend
  • Disable auto-extend

Submit metered subscription consumption in bulk via API

This is an efficiency upgrade if you are using the metered subscription in heavy amounts. We launched a new set up APIs that allow to submit consumption in bulk.

The endpoints are:

  • POST /api/sellers/{sellerId}/services/bulkconsumptions - to submit consumption in bulk

    • In the response, you’ll receive a taskId

  • GET /api/sellers/{sellerId}/services/bulkconsumptions/{taskId}

    • Use that same taskId to check on the consumption submit status. If you’re submitting thousands of consumptions line at once, it might take some time to complete. If any consumption records failed, this status check will list the failed records in the response.

API endpoint details available at Cloudmore swagger documentation.

Our technical analyst Saadick has also created a guide for bulk submit consumption via API

Price Management API enhancements

It is now possible to set prices for Microsoft Software subscriptions, Perpetual licenses and Reservations on the Broker and Organisation levels via the following API endpoints:

  • PUT /api/resellers/{resellerId}/organizations/{organizationId}/services/{serviceId}/pricelist

  • PUT /api/resellers/{resellerId}/services/{serviceId}/pricelist

You can check the subscription details and current prices via the corresponding GET endpoints:

  • GET /api/resellers/{resellerId}/organizations/{organizationId}/services/{serviceId}/pricelist

  • GET /api/resellers/{resellerId}/services/{serviceId}/pricelist

Upgrading to an existing Microsoft subscription using the new API

We’ve added new endpoints for upgrades to existing Microsoft subscriptions, and it means that you can now perform any kind of NCE seat-based subscription upgrade with Cloudmore API:

  • GET /api/resellers/{resellerId}/organizations/{organizationId}/services/csp/nce/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/existingSubscriptionEligiblities
    • Returns existing subscriptions that you can upgrade to (including ineligible subscriptions with ineligibility reason)

  • POST /api/resellers/{resellerId}/organizations/{organizationId}/services/csp/nce/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/upgradeToExistingSubscription

    • Initiates upgrade to an existing subscription
