Before opening an incident with Product Support

Please be sure that before you open a support incident with Product Support, you have performed the following sanity checks on your configuration/data - bearing in mind most issues are due to a configuration issue -:

  • The feature is correctly enabled, as described in the related Implementation Handbook
  • Correct permissions are granted to the administrator/end-user to be able to use the feature (as specified in the Implementation Handbook)
  • Has the configuration changed recently?
    • Was it working before the recent changes?
    • Can the recent change be un-done so re-testing can be performed?
  • Can the issue be reproduced for just 1 or multiple admins?
    • If the issue is reproducible for all it is still likely to be a permissions issue.
    • If it seems to be related to 1 or a small admin population - the next step is to check and verify the permissions are correctly granted.
  • Is the data correct? (Ensure that any recent configuration changes you have made have not caused any data inconsistencies)
  • HHave you verified that, according to the related Implementation Handbook, the feature is configured according to Best Practices recommended in the handbook?
