If auto-renewal is enabled for a subscription instance, the instance is automatically renewed before it expires. This topic describes how to view the auto-renewal status of an ECS instance.

Background information

After auto-renewal is enabled for an instance, the system renews the instance based on the configured auto-renewal duration. This can prevent the instance from being stopped or released to ensure your business availability. Before an instance expires, you can enable or disable auto-renewal.
