This topic describes the billing methods of ActionTrail.

ActionTrail was commercially released on January 11, 2021. You can still use it free of charge before April 11, 2021. After April 11, 2021, specific features will be successively charged. You will be notified two months in advance before Alibaba Cloud starts to charge you for the use of a specific feature.

If you use ActionTrail to create a trail and save logs to an Object Storage Service (OSS) bucket or a Log Service Logstore, you are billed separately.

ActionTrail is automatically activated. You can use a valid Alibaba Cloud account that has completed the real-name verification and has no overdue payment to log on to the ActionTrail console and use the service.
