Inference endpoints cost


If I use inference endpoints they are billed at an hourly rate. How are these activated / deactivated?

Can I turn them off during the evening for example to minimise cost. I would be purchasing the Azure CPU option as it is a prototype with only a few users.



I don’t think there is an option to turn off/on endpoints, I’d say the best option would be to setup an Azure Automation to run evenings to delete (Swagger UI) and then in the mornings to create (Swagger UI) endpoints.
