Renew an instance

The auto-renewal feature of Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ applies only to Enterprise Platinum Edition instances. You can choose manual or auto-renewal as needed.

Auto-renewal

Auto-renewal is triggered based on the following rules:

  • Auto-renewal is triggered nine days before your instance expires. If auto-renewal fails, it is triggered once a day until it succeeds or until one day before expiration.
  • The auto-renewal process starts at 8:00 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+8) every day. However, because auto-renewal is performed for instances one by one, the actual auto-renewal time for an instance may be later than 8:00. In most cases, auto-renewal will take place before 18:00 on the same day.
  • Expiration time: Assume that an instance expires at 00:00:00 on December 11. In this case, one day before expiration refers to 00:00:00 on December 10. Six days after expiration refers to 00:00:00 on December 17.
Note
  • Auto-renewal is not triggered immediately after you enable it. Auto-renewal is triggered only at the fixed times described in the preceding section.
  • If you enable auto-renewal after your instance expires, auto-renewal will not be triggered.
  • If you enable auto-renewal after 08:00 one day before expiration, auto-renewal may not take effect. Enable auto-renewal in advance to avoid this issue.

Auto-renewal methods:

  • Method 1: Enable auto-renewal for a new purchase
  • Method 2: Enable auto-renewal in the Renewal Management console
    1. Log on tothe Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ console. On the Instance Details page of the Enterprise Platinum Edition instance for which you want to enable auto-renewal, get the value of Renewal Instance ID.renewal-instance-id
