You can request to be notified on the following events:
New Invoices - an email will be sent when a new invoice is uploaded to the Cloud Management Platform
Credits Utilization - request to be notified when your credits are 75% exhausted and then again once they have been fully exhausted.
Cloud Quota Utilization - notifies you when you exceed 50% usage of any of your Google Cloud and/or AWS service quotas.
Cost Anomalies - request to be notified when our system detects abnormal usage of your cloud platform (i.e., AWS and/or Google Cloud). Additionally, you can set at which threshold (Information, Warning, Critical) you'd like to be notified.
Payment Due/Overdue - an email will be sent reminding the user to pay the invoice. There are three different instances of when notifications are sent:
The first reminder is sent seven days before an invoice is due.
The second reminder is sent four days after the invoice's due date.
The third reminder is sent 10 days after the invoice's due date.
Cloud Known Issues- get alerted whenever there is an infrastructure issue with Google Cloud and/or AWS that may affect your own workloads.
