Microsoft CSP Provider Invoice

Each Microsoft CSP provider invoice is represented by three files

  1. The invoice pdf containing the actual invoice document
  2. The closed reconciliation file containing the underlying license and consumption data, summarized at the month level.
  3. The closed daily rated file containing only usage data specified at the daily level.

Work 365 uses the daily rated file for Azure billing since that contains the lowest granularity of data. However, this daily rated file may not be immediately available or maybe partially available initially.

The provider sync engine is able to detect whether the daily rated file is unable or partially available. If this anomaly is detected, then the provider invoice import fails with a checksum error.


In most cases, the daily rated file will fix itself and the provider invoice will be automatically downloaded the next day. Further investigation maybe required if the checksum validation does not succeed by the 11th of the month.
