ClickSoftware Support Process

Incident Management

SAP customers should raise incidents in the same way as for SAP own products.

Customers can raise incidents in the standard 3 ways 

1.     Use own customer solution manager 

2.     Access SAP Service Marketplace to raise an incident http://support.sap.com

3.     Call SAP support organisation +800-CALL-1-SAP

Component to use for ClickSoftware technical issues : XX-PART-CLK

Component to use for ClickSoftware Licensing: XX-PART-CLK-LKY

Detailed information on how to open Incidents is described in the following article:

http://support.sap.com/kb-incidents/incident/help.html

Please provide the following information when opening a ClickSoftware related incident:

-ClickSoftware Version and Build

-Detailed description of the issue (when first occurred / how many users are affected / what changes were made)

-Screenshots of errors, configuration set up etc

-Event Viewer logs in the .evtx format for errors on the system

-Performance Monitor logs for performance, sizing, memory issues

-Tracer Admin logs for performance issues

SAP receives incident and processes according to the customer specific SLA which is described in SAP/Customer contract. 

SAP analysis completes to L1 or L2 after communication with customer. Message is resolved or goes to next level. 

SAP forwards incident to L3 in the same way used to forward to SAP development 

SAP contacts partner organization via SAP support backbone for all L3 tasks. All communication remains within the SAP incident for tracking purposes.

Licensing

ClickSoftware customer license requests are processed by SAP Global Partner Support. 

Customers should open an incident as above in component XX-PART-CLK-LKY and provide a valid, up to date License.request file from the ClickSoftware Structure tool. SAP will process the request and send back a license.response file which can then be applied.

Many Service Optimization environments include a number of servers, and each requires a license. When you generate a license request, all servers in your environment should be online and accessible to the server from which you are generating the request. This server can then generate a combined request for all the servers that are online, and the license that will be received back from SAP will apply to all the servers. If a server is not connected at the time that the request is generated, you should simply request another license from that server. 

This license can be applied on any of the servers included in the license request that has administrator privileges. This license will then apply to all the servers that were connected at the time of the request. The administrator should have privileges to request and apply licenses for all the servers in the farm.

Escalations

There should be no need to contact the partner escalation organization directly.

CIC/CIM deal with speed up requests, escalation requests and act as a single point of contact for incident related topics.

Speed up requests are normally made when you wish priority to be changed, a processor assigned, or feedback on progress of a ticket.

Formal escalation requests relate to critical customer issues.

Details are included in SAP note “SAP Message Escalation Procedure”  (http://support.sap.com/sap/support/notes/90835)

Use new support contact number +800-CALL-1-SAP for escalations or queries related to incidents

Details of business impact are required for formal escalation. After escalation is accepted internal organizations are triggered by CIC.
