I'm running something in ArcGIS Online and am in the testing phase. I was wondering if anyone knows if I will burn credits if the tool I'm using, fails, or does it deduct credits only it's successful?
Great question. If a tool fails and you don't receive any results, you won't be charged credits for running the tool. If you are testing out a tool with a variety of parameters and are successfully creating results each time, you will be charged the appropriate amount of credits

Here is a similar discussion that talks more about what happens when you exceed the allotted credits:
What happens to a task/process if the user alloted credits are reached?
Good question... none of the documentation seems to touch on that! I have to imagine, though, you would be debited credits as it is using CPU cycles. I could be wrong, however... I'm interested to know what Esri has to say.
