Generate a Document

When selecting document types such as Executive summary, Billing details, Cost comparison, Resource Auditing or Rightsizing recommendations, it is essential to also choose the currency type in which the cost details for those documents are to be displayed.

In the Generate document blade, the details of the published platform, configured subscriptions, and notifications are displayed so that the user is aware of all the relevant information regarding document generation.

The document generation process takes some time since it combines all the relevant information about resource usage and the user's Azure subscription costs into a single Azure technical document. The processing steps are determined by the type of document chosen during the document generation process.
