Q: I am a CSP, can I use LM Cloud to monitor billing for other clients? The setup of lm cloud asks for offer ID and i can't find that on any azure client that has us listed as their CSP; Azure Billing Monitoring; CSP clients do not have an offer ID. CSP clients do not have an offer ID because CSP handles billing. It's in a screenshot in the steps under Getting Started: https://www.logicmonitor.com/support/lm-cloud/microsoft-azure/azure-billing-monitoring
