This topic describes how to switch the billing method of a data synchronization instance or change tracking instance from pay-as-you-go to subscription. The switch of the billing method has no impact on the underlying channels.

Prerequisites

A subscription instance is created. The subscription instance meets the following requirements:

  • For a data synchronization instance, the following parameters of the subscription instance are the same as those of the data synchronization instance: Source Instance, Source Region, Target Instance, Target Region, and Synchronization Topology.
  • For a change tracking instance, the Source Region parameter of the subscription instance is the same as that of the change tracking instance.

For more information about how to purchase a data synchronization instance or change tracking instance, see Purchase procedure.

Precautions

  • The billing method of subscription instances cannot be switched to pay-as-you-go. To prevent resource waste, determine whether you need to switch the billing method of your resources.
  • Data migration instances are all pay-as-you-go instances. You do not need to switch the billing method of data migration instances.
  • The switch of the billing method from pay-as-you-go to subscription has no impact on the underlying channels.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the DTS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Change Tracking or Data Synchronization.
  3. Find the target instance and click Switch to Subscription in the Actions column.Switch to subscription
  4. In the Switch to Subscription dialog box, select the subscription instance that you have created.
    Note After the billing method is switched from pay-as-you-go to subscription, DTS releases the pay-as-you-go instance.
    Switch to subscription
  5. Click OK.
