Quota Management Quota Management

Last Updated: Feb. 26, 2024

Manage team quotas in your Coralogix account using the following tutorial.

Overview

The quota management API allows team administrators to view and distribute quotas across teams they manage. Allocate and move quotas across teams for any period to:

  • Contend with unexpected spikes in logs shipping to one team
  • Better handle resources when a team is underutilizing its quota
  • Meet new or changing capacity requirements of your teams 
  • Save on cost by more efficiently using quotas

Prerequisites

  • The latest version of the Coralogix CLI
  • Teams API key (Access this in Account settings > API Access)
  • Team ID (Access this in Account settings > Send Your Logs)
  • Team administrator (admin) role granted to the person moving quotas between teams (He / she must be team admin in both the team receiving and giving the quota)

Limitations & Constraints

  • The minimum quota that can be transferred is 0.001 GB.
  • A quota cannot be moved to a trial account.
  • Quotas can only be moved between teams with the same retention period.
  • Quotas cannot be transferred from a team if the remaining daily quota is less than the quota being moved. In this case, transfer will be possible once the daily quota resets at 00:00 UTC
  • You need to be admin on the teams you are trying to move quota between.
  • Quota allocations will take a maximum of 15 minutes to take effect.
