Most plan change requests are related to requesting a trial with an existing
subscription on GitLab.com, which is an open feature request #12186.
At times, it is to immediately expire the trial or downgrade the namespace to Free.
For these issues:
Try it in CustomersDot admin first.
If you receive an error, follow the usual troubleshooting procedures in
looking up the error in sentry and/or for an existing CustomersDot issue,
adding to an existing issue or creating a new one as required.
As a workaround, the plan can be changed manually in one of two ways:
GitLab.com: Add ~"Admin Escalation" label and if needed, ping the dotcom group.
Customers Console: Add ~"Console Escalation::Customers" and if needed, ping the customers-console group.
