I've been doing quite a few Trailhead exercises for SFDX and am really enjoying the learning process. However, after going through one of the exercises, I seem to have reached the scratch org daily limit right in the middle of a Hands-on challenge.

ERROR running force:org:create: The signup request failed because this organization has reached its daily scratch org signup limit

This is a real bummer, because I've spent hours on this particular module and was just about to finish. :)

In hopes of working around the problem, I've gone into my Dev Hub and deleted all active scratch orgs. Still, I have null remaining DailyScratchOrgs.

Questions:

  1. Even though I've deleted the active orgs, is it correct that I cannot create any additional orgs because I've reached the daily limit?
  2. Is there any workaround? Can I increase the daily scratch org allocation for the developer edition? (Is there a way to buy more, even?)
  3. I'm not sure when my last 24 hour timespan started. Is there any way of telling when my daily limit will be replenished?

Many thanks in advance!

Update: sfdcfox was bang on the money when he said that the daily limit would refresh at 00:00 GMT. See below.

Correct. Developer Orgs have a rather limited number of daily scratch org creations. You have to wait until the next day. Documentation doesn't state when this reset occurs, but it's probably midnight GMT, just like many of the other daily limits.

Is there any workaround? Can I increase the daily scratch org allocation for the developer edition? (Is there a way to buy more, even?)

I suppose a "workaround" would be to use a second developer org. This limit can only be increased in production orgs, not developer editions. I personally have a developer org I use to model questions on SFSE, and another to pursue personal projects.

I'm not sure when my last 24 hour timespan started. Is there any way of telling when my daily limit will be replenished?

The documentation doesn't say, but most "daily limits" (such as bulk email limits) reset at GMT-00:00. I presume, based on my personal experience, that this reset timer occurs then.

    OK, sfdcfox, I stand here completely astonished. I literally just finished listening to the Salesforce Developer Podcast (Episode 005) where you were featured. And now, here you are, true to form: helping me, just as you said you were wont to do for so many of us fellow devs! I'm so impressed! Thank you very much! Your comments are very helpful to me. Cheers! – Max Dec 1 '19 at 16:38
