You can change the billing method of an ApsaraDB for MongoDB instance from pay-as-you-go to subscription. Changing the billing method of the instance has no impact on the running of the instance.

Precautions

  • The billing method of subscription-based instances cannot be changed to pay-as-you-go. To prevent resource waste, determine whether you need to change the billing method of your resources.
  • You cannot release subscription-based instances.
  • You cannot update the specifications of the instance if you have an unpaid subscription-based instance. You need to cancel this order on the Orders page and change the billing method of the corresponding instance to subscription.

Prerequisites

  • The instance is in the running state.
  • The billing method of the instance is pay-as-you-go.
  • You do not have an unpaid subscription-based instance.
  • The instance type cannot be phased-out types (that is, instance types are no longer available for sale). For more information about phased-out instance types, see the Instance types displayed before July 10, 2017. If you need to change the billing method of a phased-out instance type to subscription, change the instance type first. For specific operations, see Change the configuration.
