What is a Financial Enforcement Action?
Financial enforcement actions are configurable remediation actions you can set to trigger on a funding source, project, or OU when a spending limit is surpassed. You can also set enforcement actions at the service level within a project or OU.
When you have financial enforcement actions configured, you get:
- Visual indicators to automatically alert users of excess spending.
- Automated actions to freeze spend or downsize instances.
- Workflow integrations to request funds and perform other custom actions.
While you can set enforcement actions at the funding source or OU level, we recommend setting enforcements at the project level for more granular control. When you set enforcements at the funding source or OU level, every associated project will be affected if one project overspends.
