On Aliyun, there is only one license type: BYOL. There is no pay as you go/on-demand license available to purchase for FortiManager-VM for OCI.

BYOL is perpetual licensing, as opposed to PAYG, which is an hourly subscription available with marketplace-listed products. BYOL licenses are available for purchase from resellers or your distributors, and prices are listed in the publicly available price list that is updated quarterly. BYOL licensing provides the same ordering practice across all private and public clouds, no matter what the platform is. You must activate a license for the first time you access the instance from the GUI or CLI before you can start using various features.
