New Licensing for Azure SQL Databases
If you are going to start licensing by the number of Azure SQL Databases, at least provide the option of adding and removing databases from the Azure SQL Server.
I have three databases on one Azure SQL Server that are costing me licenses, however two are data warehouses and one is paused. If they are not being monitored, why am I being charged for a license?
Thank you for this suggestion.
The ability to add/remove individual licenses for Azure SQL Databases has been implemented in version 8.0.22, released on 13th November.
We hope this meets your requirements and will mark this suggestion as completed, but please do let us know if you have any further feedback.

Thank you for the ability to remove the license.
One thing though - If I remove the license for a database, I get a banner at the top of the page that says, "You have unlicensed servers. Unlicensed servers will not be monitored and will not raise alerts. Manage licenses | Manage monitored servers". And, on the "Configuration > Monitored servers" page the databases show with a red x, as Unlicensed, and a Manage licenses link.
It is good that we can remove the licenses for individual databases, but would it be possible to actually remove the databases once they are unlicensed, so that we don't have to have the banner and the unlicensed message on the monitored servers page?
Thank you again.
