Customer Dashboard

Dashboard tabs

These tabs allow selection between the three main pages

  • Home - where new tickets can be raised and your support entitlement information seen
  • Incidents - list all incidents as per the filter selected
  • Subscriptions - Detailed information on all purchased subscriptions

Subscription information

This area shows your subscription details, how many incidents (tickets) you have available to raise support requests against, and your subscription renewal date. To raise a new incident press the 'Create Incident' button. This will take you into a new page detailed later.

The 'Remaining Incident XX/YY' count shows you have XX incidents left out of a total of YY. The total incident figure shown has been calculated for the length of your subscription period. If you use all your incidents up, you can purchase additional support incidents via your account manager or by emailing sales@opsview.com.

Severity level

Mark the urgency of the ticket most appropriate to your situation. Guidance on the definition for each level can be seen by hovering the mouse over the Severity help icon. As the incident progresses our support engineer may change the level if appropriate.

Your system details

You should fill out your current Opsview version number (if yours is not listed then please use the closest one available), environment (hardware and OS details) and number of hosts. This detail is stored for use for all incidents raised on this subscription, although the version and host count must be completed each time as they can change more often.

Incident type

Mark this incident as a 'Problem', 'Feature Request' or 'Question'

Incident details

The 'subject' should contain a brief overview of the problem, while 'description' should contain as much detail about the issue as possible, such as what page the error is seen on (including the URL) or how the situation arose. The greater the detail you can add here, the quicker our Customer Success engineer can solve your issue!
