kdb Insights or kdb Insights Enterprise License

You can purchase kdb Insights or kdb Insights Enterprise for use on Azure, via the Marketplace. To do this you must create and configure your account on our transactable SaaS billing offer named: kdb Insights or kdb Insights Enterprise License. You will be provided access to the license and software so that you can provision the infrastructure and install the application on Azure yourself.


You will see in your invoices that this offer is billed for the agreed KX License amount. This allows you to create your kdb Insights or kdb Insights Enterprise instance whenever you want and we will still be able to generate KX License bills through this offer.

Our offer is MACC (Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment) eligible, meaning it will contribute to your Azure consumption commitment benefit.

Grant Consent

By default, any user can consent to this scope, but the permissions required to consent will depend on your Azure Tenant Policies. In some cases, only an Admin user has the appropriate access:

Grant Admin Consent

If admin rights are required to consent, you will need to reach out to a person with one of the following roles: Global Administrator, Cloud Application Administrator, Application Administrator

An administrator can either:

  1. Allow users to consent for apps from verified publishers and mark User.Read scope to be low impact
