We’ve already heard from a number of customers who are leveraging the open source Gateway SDK to connect their legacy devices or run analytics at the edge of their network. It’s great to see quick adoption! With the Gateway SDK’s modular architecture, developers can also program their own custom modules to perform specific actions. Thanks to its flexible design, you can create these modules in your preferred language – Node.js, Java, C#, or C. (NuGet, Maven etc. packages)

Users in this role can perform Azure billing management operations such as viewing subscription scoped cost reporting data and downloading invoices. Also, today we are releasing the public preview of a new billing API that will allow you to programmatically download subscription’s billing invoices.
