Overview of units usage

Each Aqua plan comes with a default number of units as listed below:

  1. Developer (free) plan: 500 units
  2. Team plan: 10,000 units
  3. Advanced plan: 25,000 units
  4. Enterprise plan: 500 units (but an unlimited number of units can be purchased later on)

For more information about Aqua plans and their pricings, see Plans & Pricing. 

Once the units are exhausted, you have to upgrade to a higher plan. If you are assigned with the Enterprise plan, additional units can be added. For example, if you are on the Team plan with total units of 10,000, you cannot buy more units and stay on the Team plan on exhausting the allotted 10,000 units. You must upgrade to the Advanced plan to get more units (you get a total of 25,000 units on upgrading to the Advanced plan). Similarly, once you exhaust the total units on the Advanced plan, you must upgrade to the Enterprise plan. Once you are on the Enterprise plan, you can purchase as many units as required.
