This topic describes how to configure quota alerts and expiration alerts for resource plans.

Configure quota alerts for resource plans

Notice You can set alerts only for subscription resource plans and the resource plans whose total quota decreases after the plan is used to offset fees.

  1. Log on to the Billing Management console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Resource Packages > Overview.
  3. On the Overview tab, click Set Threshold Alert.
  4. In the Set Threshold Alert dialog box, turn on Quota Alerting, and then specify the ratio threshold for the remaining quota. Click OK.
    For example, if you set the proportion to 20%, OSS sends you a notification when 20% of of the monthly quota of your resource plan remains.

Configure expiration alerts for resource plans

After you set the expiration alert for a resource plan, the system sends you notifications when the resource plan is about to expire by email or internal messages.

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, click the Internal Messages icon.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Message Settings > Common Settings.
