Renew an instance

The auto-renewal feature of Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ is available only for Enterprise Platinum Edition instances. You can choose to enable auto-renewal for an instance or manually renew the instance.

Auto-renewal

If you need to use a service for a long time, you can enable the auto-renewal feature. After the auto-renewal feature is enabled, the system renews your instance before your resources expire to ensure that your resources and data are not deleted.

Rules for triggering auto-renewal:

  • Auto-renewal is triggered nine days before your instance expires. If the first auto-renewal attempt fails, auto-renewal is triggered once a day until it succeeds, up to one day before the instance expires.
  • The auto-renewal process starts at 08:00 (UTC+8) every day. However, an instance may be renewed after 08:00 because instances are automatically renewed in sequence. In most cases, an instance is renewed no later than 18:00 on the same day when auto-renewal starts.
  • Expiration time: If an instance expires at 00:00 on December 11, the day before the expiration date starts at 00:00 on December 10. The sixth day after the expiration date starts at 00:00 on December 17.
Note
  • Auto-renewal is not triggered immediately after you enable the feature. Auto-renewal is triggered only at the fixed point in time, as 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 on the day before the expiration date, auto-renewal may not take effect. If you want to enable auto-renewal, we recommend that you enable auto-renewal at your earliest opportunity.

Methods for enabling auto-renewal:

  • Method 1: Enable auto-renewal for a new purchase
  • Method 2: Enable auto-renewal in the Renewal Management console
    1. Log on to the Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ console. Obtain the Instance ID for Renewal: of your Enterprise Platinum Edition instance. Instance ID for renewal

Rules for manual renewal:

Configure the post-release action for an instance

You can configure the action for processing resources based on your service requirements after your Enterprise Platinum Edition instance is unsubscribed or released due to expiration. Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ provides the following options:
  • Delete Resources After Release: deletes the instance and all its topic and group resources. The resources cannot be restored after they are deleted.
  • Change to Standard Edition After Release: changes the instance type from the Enterprise Platinum Edition to the Standard Edition. After this action is performed, you are billed for the instance based on the pay-as-you-go billing method. For more information about fees, see Overview. If you do not want to continue using this instance, delete the instance and the topic and group resources in the instance at your earliest opportunity.
The default post-release action of an Enterprise Platinum Edition instance is Delete Resources After Release. You cannot configure the post-release action when you create the instance. You can configure the post-release action on the Instance Details page of the instance after you create the instance. To configure the post-release action, perform the following steps:
