Budget

  • In Triggered Alert summary, for failed event, under Event Type, added Stop Instance event. When budget thresholds are crossed, you can configure the budget settings instances that can automatically stop or terminated by the system. For a system failure, to stop the configured instance, only a failure event is logged in the budget alerts. With this new feature, you can trigger the stop instance event from the budget alert. This reduces the hassle of getting into cloud-native portals.
