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 and Experience running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).

  1. After you sign in to the Oracle Content and Experience 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 assets 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 assets is shown next to the setting.
    • Video Plus Asset Limit: If you enabled Video Plus (see below), and you want to be notified when the total number of Video Plus assets 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 Video Plus assets is shown next to the setting.
    • 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.
    • 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.
  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. The current amount of data transferred during the current billing period is shown next to the setting.
  5. Set the following billing options:
    • Billing Start Day: Enter the day of the month that your billing period starts.
    • Video Capabilities: Select from the following options:
      • Standard: Allow your users to upload, manage, preview, and download videos. This option provides the same management and delivery capabilities as for any other assets, providing tagging, categorization, review, conversation, basic playback, and so on.
      • Video Plus - Advanced Video Management: Video Plus provides a rich video management and delivery experience, including all the standard features plus advanced capabilities for optimized editing, streaming, automatic transcoding and conversion, and more responsive playback options.

        If you want to use Video Plus, you must also agree to additional cost of the Video Plus advanced video capabilities. Video Plus is an added service with an associated cost. Costs are billed monthly based on the number of video assets in your system. Existing costs for outbound traffic and for storage are unchanged and apply to videos like any other asset. Costs are prorated.
