Plan change requests

If you need to request a trial for a namespace with an existing subscription on, view the handling trials workflow page.

Otherwise, you're probably here to immediately expire a namespace's trial or downgrade the namespace to Free.


For these issues:

  1. 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.
  2. Use the Update GitLab Subscription form processor to directly modify the customer's subscription.
  3. If these don't work, as a workaround the plan can be changed manually in one of two ways:
    1. Add ~"Admin Escalation" label and if needed, ping the dotcom group.
    2. Customers Console: Add ~"Console Escalation::Customers" and if needed, ping the customers-console group.
