This topic describes how to purchase a Smart Access Gateway (SAG) app instance. Only administrators can purchase SAG app instances. After an administrator purchases an SAG app instance, the administrator can create client accounts on the SAG app instance.


  1. Log on to the SAG console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region in which you want to create the SAG app instance.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Smart Access Gateway App > SAG App Instances.
  4. On the SAG App Instances page, click Create SAG App, set the following parameters, and then click Buy Now. Then, confirm the order, select the Terms of Service check box, and then complete the payment.
    Parameter Description
    Region Select the region where the SAG app is used.
    Number of Client Accounts Select the number of client accounts that can be created for the SAG app. Typically, each employee who needs to log on to the SAG app requires one client account.
    Note You can select 1 to 2,000 client accounts. Client accounts are billed based on a tiered pricing strategy. For more information, see Billing and pricing of the SAG app.
    Data Plan Per Account Each client account has a free data transfer quota. By default, 5 GB of data usage is allocated to each client account per month.

    The free data transfer quota cannot be shared among client accounts and is valid only within the month when the data transfer quota is allocated.

    Billing Method When Billing Plan is Exhausted If the data transfer quota of a client account is exhausted, you are charged for data transfer overages based on the pay-by-data-transfer metering method.
    Duration Select a subscription duration for the data plan of the client accounts. SAG supports monthly subscriptions. Auto-renewal is supported.
