This topic describes the actions you can perform from the Account tab and Account drop-down in your Dashboard, which include:

Logging Out of Your Account

Reviewing and Updating Your Billing Information
If you subscribed to Splice Machine via the AWS Marketplace, your billing is handled by AWS, not Splice Machine. Your Account Management screen will not contain a Billing Activity tab; this section does not apply to you.
To display billing information for your account, select the Billing Activity tab in a Cloud Manager screen. You can see billing details for each month of each year that your account has been alive. You can also hover over one of the bars representing a cluster to see exactly how much that cluster cost in a month (as shown for July in the image below).
If you have provisioned more than one cluster in your account, each cluster is shown in a different color in the billing detail graphic, as shown below.
To update your payment source, click the Update button.
Prorated Monthly Billing
Splice Machine bills for our database service on a prorated monthly basis; any adjustments for deleting or downsizing your cluster(s) are applied to future bills or cluster purchases.
