Downgrading to a Free Plan


This information applies to SwaggerHub SaaS.

Organization owners can downgrade the organization to the free plan at any time.


A downgrade does not happen immediately – the old plan will remain in effect until the end of the current billing period, and the free plan will go into effect afterwards.

What happens when you downgrade to a free plan

  • The organization owner who performed the downgrade remains the sole owner, and any other owners and Designers are downgraded to Consumers.

  • Any APIs and domains above the free plan limits remain in your organization account but become blocked. The blocked definitions are the latest ones created.

    To access the blocked definitions, you will need to either upgrade to a paid plan again or delete unused definitions to fit within the free plan limits. To access blocked private definitions, you may need to make them public. These changes can be done both before and after the plan change.

  • Any collaborators above the free plan limits will be restricted to view only.

Switch to a free plan

  1. Go to My Hub and click next to the organization name in the sidebar.

  2. Switch to the Plan tab.

  3. Click Cancel Plan.

    Cancel plan
  4. Read the warning and confirm the downgrade to a free plan.

    Confirm plan cancellation

You still have access to your previous plan until the end of the billing cycle. The effective cancellation date is displayed on the Plan page in organization settings:
