Filing Support Tickets

If you have already searched our documentation and forums, and still need help with your question, you can file a ticket.

Note: You must log in before you can file a ticket.

While we use a single sign-on system to allow access to multiple accounts under one email, a unique email must be used for each ticketing account. To keep tickets filed under the correct accounts, please do not open a ticket by email, instead file it through the ticketing system itself. See this doc for more information on accessing multiple ticketing accounts.

File a Support ticket

To file a ticket, click the "Submit a Request" tab along the top of the page. A new ticket request form appears.

Complete the ticket fields

The information you put in the ticket is very important. The more detailed information you can give us, the better we can respond to your request.


Enter a short description of the support request. After you enter text into this field and move on to the description, the system will suggest some of the topics that might be helpful to you, as shown below.
