Entitlement Information (including incident count)

This area shows what support entitlements you have available to raise support incidents against, along with the 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. Further incidents can be purchased as and when required.

Severity level

Mark the urgency of the ticket most appropriate to your situation. Help on what each level covers can be seen by hovering the mouse over the Severity help icon. As the ticket progresses the support engineer may change the level if appropriate.

Your system details

You are required to fill out your current Opsview version (if yours is not listed then please use the closest one available), environment (hardware and OS details) and number of hosts. The environment is stored for use for all tickets raised on this support entitlement but version and hosts must be filled in each time as they can change more often.

Incident type

Mark this ticket 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, the less likely the support engineer will have to ask more questions.
