Each Subscription has its own Billing cycle:
- For license-based subscription it is calculated from subscription’s start date: if the subscription is purchased on the 12th of November, then subscription’s billing cycle is 12. If subscription starts on 29th, 30th or 31st it gets 1 as a billing cycle. License-based subscription can have monthly or annual billing frequency.
- Consumption-based subscriptions are aligned with the billing cycle of resell contract under which this subscription is purchased. A usage-based subscription always has a monthly frequency.
- One-time subscription has a one-time payment and does not have billing frequency at all.
Add-on subscription always gets its billing cycle from parent subscription, regardless of its start date.
