Configure Billing Settings

You can specify the limits at which you want to be notified for billing metrics and several other billing options. You can also see the current counts for billed items. These settings apply only to Oracle Content Management running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).

Note:

Oracle Content Management Starter Edition has a limited feature set, and therefore the billing settings are read-only. To take advantage of the full feature set, upgrade to the Premium Edition.
  1. After you sign in to the Oracle Content Management web application as an administrator, click System in the Administration area of the navigation menu.

  2. In the System Settings drop-down menu, choose Billing.
  3. If you want to be notified when you get close to reaching certain billing limits, set the limits, and then enable Send Administrative Warning. You'll receive an email if you reach 90% of one of the specified billing limits. You can set the following limits:
    • Asset Limit: If you want to be notified when the total number of standard assets in your system exceeds a limit, enter that number here. If you don't want to set a limit, enter 0. This setting doesn't apply to archived or business assets.

      The current number of standard assets and archived assets is shown next to the setting.

      Archived assets are billed at 1/200th the cost of standard assets. For example, if you have 2,000 archived assets, that would be billed as 10 standard assets.

      Business assets (those stored in business repositories) are billed at 1/100th the cost of standard assets. For example, if you have 5,000 business assets, that would be billed as 50 standard assets.

    • File Limit: If you want to be notified when the total number of files in your system exceeds a limit, enter that number here. If you don't want to set a limit, enter 0. The current number of files is shown next to the setting. Files are billed at 1/20th the cost of standard assets. For example, if you have 2,000 files in Documents, that would be billed as 100 standard assets.
    • Storage Limit: If you want to be notified when the total gigabytes of storage used exceeds a limit, enter that number here. If you don't want to set a limit, enter 0. The current amount of storage used is shown next to the setting.
    • Enforce Limits: If you want to restrict users from being able to create new objects (such as assets or files) when your selected billing limits are reached, enable this option. Users will receive an error when they try to create an object type that has reached its billing limit.
  4. If you want to be notified when you get close to reaching a specified outbound data transfer limit, set the Outbound Data Transfer Limit at which you want to be notified, and then enable Send Administrative Warning. If the total gigabytes of data transferred in an hour reaches 90% of the specified limit, you'll receive an email. If you don't want to set a limit, enter 0. Next to the setting, you see the current amount of data transferred during the current billing period for both origin traffic and content delivery network (CDN) traffic.

    Enforce Limits: If you want to restrict users from accessing Oracle Content Management and any sites created in Oracle Content Management when your selected outbound data transfer limit is reached, enable this option. Users will receive an error when they try to access Oracle Content Management or any Oracle Content Management-created sites.

  5. Set the Billing Start Day, the day of the month that your billing period starts.
