Global Accelerator:ReplaceBandwidthPackage

Last Updated:May 16, 2024

Replaces the bandwidth plans of Global Accelerator (GA) instances.

Operation description

When you call this operation, take note of the following items:

  • The GA instance continues to forward network traffic.

  • ReplaceBandwidthPackage is an asynchronous operation. After a request is sent, the system returns a request ID and runs the task in the background. You can call the DescribeAccelerator or ListAccelerators operation to query the status of the GA instance.

    • If the GA instance is in the configuring state, it indicates that the associated bandwidth plan is being replaced. In this case, you can perform only query operations.
    • If the GA instance is in the active state, it indicates that the associated bandwidth plan is replaced.
  • The ReplaceBandwidthPackage operation holds an exclusive lock on the GA instance. While the operation is in progress, you cannot call the same operation in the same Alibaba Cloud account.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer.
