How To Create Cases On Behalf Of Another Company


Description

Sitecore partners and customers must select a valid Sitecore License when registering support cases on behalf of another company.

If you are not able to find the needed company and its license when creating a support case (for example, when an implementation partner needs to create a case on behalf of a customer), you need to register a relationship with that company as described in one of the following sections. Note that any registered relation expires in 365 days and needs to be re-registered after expiration.

How To Create Cases On Behalf Of Another Company

To create a case on behalf of another company follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to https://support.sitecore.com/ under the appropriate user.
  2. Select a customer company and license in the Contract field when creating a case. For more details see KB0654910#HowToCreateASupportCase.
  3. If you are not able to find a customer company and license, register a relationship with the license that is used in the affected project as described below.
