About Budget Alert Emails

Budget alert emails are sent during the billing period when an alert threshold for the following criteria has been exceeded:

  • Budget Threshold Amount
  • Alert Type
  • Alert Threshold Amount
  • Alert Threshold Type

If you change any of your threshold criteria after a budget alert email has already been sent, you will receive a subsequent email when the new criteria is exceeded, even during the same billing period.

Required IAM Policy

To use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you must be granted security access in a policy  by an administrator. This access is required whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. If you get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, verify with your administrator what type of access you have and which compartment  to work in.

If you're new to policies, see Getting Started with Policies and Common Policies.
