Cost Monitoring

When using marbot, you are paying for the users who joined a channel with marbot (Slack) or joined the same team (Microsoft Teams). See Pricing for details. The pay-per-usage model comes with many benefits, as you do not have to pay for unused licenses. However, you might want to keep an eye on the monthly costs. After the 14-day free trial, an AWS Marketplace subscription is required to use marbot. This also means that marbot will appear as an item on the AWS billing statement. You will learn how to use AWS Budgets to monitor the monthly costs for marbot and get notified when usage exceeds your budget.
