This topic describes the billing methods of ActionTrail.

The ActionTrail service is free of charge. You can use it after you activate it. However, 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.

Currently, ActionTrail is automatically activated. Any valid Alibaba Cloud account that has completed the real-name verification and has no overdue payment is allowed to directly log on to the ActionTrail console and use the service.
