Customers frequently contact support and sales to request a cancellation of their subscription despite the subscription already being set to cancel at the end of the term. This quick change applies a visual Cancels in [x] days/weeks/months label on the subscription record to draw user attention to this detail.

Allow users to renew an expired subscription Sales Support

As per the Sales/Finance policy of updating customer subscriptions to cancelled and closing the respective Renewal opportunity 30 days after subscription term end date, we should allow the customer to renew their expired subscription within customers.gitlab.com with a 30 day grace period as well.

Self-managed Billable Users Sales Support Finance

In self-managed instances, we've changed labels to Billable Userswhere we are explicitly referring to users which are counted as taking up a license seat. This is to reduce confusion around inconsistency in using Active users within the admin pages.

Notify admins as instance approaches user limit Sales Support

As the self-managed instances approaches the subscribed user limit, we are now sending an email to all admins of the instance to prevent undesired surprise user overages.

Project Bot no longer taking up seat Sales Support

The Access team recently released a new Project Access Token feature which creates a GitLab-generated Bot users. This bot was taking up a license seat in the instance. We have now fixed this and moving forward, Project Bot will no longer take up a license seat. Unfortunately the Max User Count will not update for anyone who was affected by this.

We've updated the requirement from 180 days to 90 days which allows admin to deactivate users more timely.
