This class manages billing plans, which incorporate prices and resource limits for users. Billing plans can be associated with compute resource, network, data store and backup server zones, as well as template and edge groups. Consequently, these plans enable you to control overall user resource limits, and limits for resources in different zones of the cloud.

Be aware that the maximum price value that you can set is 1013.

These are the resources you can limit and set prices for, along with the units in which they are measured:

For the complete list of billing plan limits along with their details, refer to the Set Billing Plan Prices And Resource Limits section of the Admin guide.

Starting from the 3.1 release, the master bucket and master template are introduced:

  • Master buckets are set for compute zone limits.
  • Master templates set for data store zone and network zone limits, respectively.

The master zones are added to each billing plan automatically. When the master bucket or master template limits are applied to a base resource, each virtual server within that base resource (compute resource, data store or network zone) will come under these values.

NOTE: You can not edit a base resource which is a part of a master bucket or a master template. The HTTP status 422 will be returned.

The relevant API calls have been added for the master zones management are added to the Billing Plans section of this guide:
