Azure Resource Optimization Assessment [Template]


Azure provides the ability to easily and quickly spin up VMs with the related resources including disks, IPs and network security groups. However, deleting a VM doesn’t necessarily remove all the related resources leaving behind resources that continue to consume subscription dollars.

The Voleer Azure Resource Optimization Assessment extracts data across Azure subscriptions, providing a dashboard view of resources that may be not utilized but still costing money, and detailed information on resources to help identify if such resources can be removed.

How it works

This template retrieves data across Azure subscription(s) to determine potential resource optimizations such as

  • Orphaned / unattached disks

  • Unused VMs

  • Extraneous public IPs, network interfaces and network security groups


To run this report, you will require an Azure account with rights to the subscriptions that will be assessed, with the following Azure roles - Via Access Control (IAM) under Subscriptions section in AAD.

  • Reader

  • Storage Blob Data Reader
