Billing FAQ

  • What is an Active Namespace?

    “Active Namespace” means concurrent namespaces where you are doing operations, e.g., a rollout, intercept, etc.

  • What is an Active Service?

    “Active Service” means an intercept, rollout, etc. has been performed on the service in the last 28 days.

  • What is an Active Developer?

    “Active Developer” means developers who have write permissions; unlimited read only users.

  • How do I know how many Active Namespaces I’m currently using?

    You will be able to track and manage your Active Namesapes from within Ambassador Cloud.

  • If I end up needing fewer active namespaces, can I downgrade to a cheaper plan? Do I get a credit for unused namespaces?

    Yes, you can request a downgrade to a cheaper Developer Edition plan by deleting namespaces from within your Cloud account. The downgrade will be effective at the next renewal date of your existing subscription (monthly or annual term).

  • How much does it cost for additional namespaces?
