  3. Complete the AAF Subscription Form and email it to subscribe@aaf.edu.au
  4. Ensure your organisation complies with the Federation Rules.
  5. Pay your annual subscription fee
  6. Move to the Federation production environment.

Subscription plans

There are four plans to choose from, each with different allowances and fees. The plan you choose will depend on your organisation’s size and intended use of the AAF. This information is outlined on the Pricing page.

Trial Federation (Test environment)

If you would like to try before you buy, the AAF offers a Trial Federation where you can test and experiment with your services at any time without subscribing to the AAF. It is a great way to access and become comfortable with the technologies of the Federation.

For more information about getting setup in the Trial Federation, go to the AAF Knowledgebase.
