  1. Identify VMs configured for ASR replication in Recovery Vaults

    VMs that are deleted are not automatically deleted from ASR so are still costing money. A job to find and delete these would save cash.

  2. Identify orphaned backups in Recovery Vaults

    VMs often get deleted but are still configured for backups, a clean up of these backups often saves fairly big money.

  10. Improve the authentication experience (when logging in from the digest)

    When you have multiple tenants, you get multiple digests. Thus, when you click on one of the links in the digest, you get a redirect to the login page of the tenant where you fill in your email address for that specific tenant and after that it is an SSO experience.

    It would be great however if you could code the username or tenant id in the link and redirect me to the Azure AD authentication endpoint for the specific tenant bypassing your “email entry page”.

  11. Ability to drill down the bar graphs in Overcast for more information

    On the Overview page (and any page with a bar chart), it'd be convenient to be able to click a bar in the chart for a given month and that takes you to a report of all the resources for that month.

  12. Improve the submission of feedback in-app

    There’s no obvious way to send feedback via the Overcast GUI except for initiating a “Conversation” with the “Intercom” tool, which I don’t want to use.

  13. Visibility on the cost variation between 2 consecutive months

    Ability to compare any two consecutive months. That would be convenient to understand the variance/variation between them, instead of the limitation of only comparing variance for last 30 days.

  14. Bulk Setup of Cost Hubs (CSV import or Resource Group Tag Read)

    Currently the CostHub setup process is very manual, a CSV import would allow swift setup, even better would be if Overcast could read tags on Resource Groups to populate costhubs

  16. Ability to integrate with AWS and Azure out of the box

  19. Offer an experience with the expiration of tagged resources

    From time to time we need to create ephemeral resources (Proof of concepts, training, etc.)

    Allow me to track/receive notification about resources/resource groups that have an expiry tag ("expiresOn" in our case) with a date < today.
