A quota limits the number of Cloud Assistant commands that you can retain per Alibaba Cloud region. The quota ranges from 500 or 10,000. To maintain a sufficient command quota, we recommend that you regularly delete commands that are no longer needed.

Background information

You can also use the immediate execution feature to create and execute commands without consuming the command quota. For more information, see Use the immediate execution feature.
