Enterprise Change Approval is not provided as a tenant-level resource and is not shared among IAM users of the same tenant if not configured.

Users can view only the enterprises they have joined. You can access a desired enterprise and choose System Management > User Management to manage users, such as synchronizing IAM users.

    • Enterprise specifications can be upgraded only. Select a proper instance quantity during the purchase.

    Billing details of Enterprise Change Approval:

    • Yearly/Monthly: provides a larger discount than pay-per-use. Therefore, it is cost-effective for long-term subscribers.
    • If your enterprise specifications are not what you expected, choose Billing Center > My Orders to change the setting.

      On the displayed page, choose Unsubscriptions and Changes. For details, click Unsubscription Rules on the current page.

    • Pay-per-use: You are charged based on the resource usage by hour. Partial hours are billed as full hours.
    • When enabling Enterprise Change Approval, select the instance quantity carefully because fees are deducted as soon as you click Buy Now. After an enterprise is enabled, you can change its specifications by choosing More > Change Specification.
    • If you want to stop the pay-per-use billing, choose More > Delete.
