Maximum upgrade metrics

There is a maximum limit (quantity) of a product that can be purchased at a time. The maximum limit is set to avoid errors or prevent the purchase of a very high quantity which could have an impact on customer costs and could impact platform stability. This limit is dependent on the product selected and might change over time. As an example you can find some limits related to products in the table below.
