When creating paid resources like Radio Streams or Transcoders with the API, a billing plan must be specified. Each billing plan is uniquely identified by a short "slug" string.
All resources are billed by the hour. For pricing and more information about billing, see Pricing.
This page lists all possible values for the billing plan field, for each resource type:
streaming_planfield is deprecated as of September 20th, 2023, with the introduction of Listener Capacity Pools. It is no longer necessary to specify this field when creating streams. Any
streaming_planwill be mapped onto the new standard
Both Radio Mast and External Radio Streams can have Stream Monitoring turned on by setting the
plan field nested
monitoring. Possible values for the monitoring plan are:
basic- Stream uptime monitoring
silence_detection- Stream uptime monitoring and silence detection
null- Monitoring will be disabled
For more information on configuring monitoring via the API, please see Monitoring.
Listener Capacity Pools do not have an explicit billing plan associated with them, and are instead billed
based off the
quality chosen when creating the pool.
