SAP Crystal Server and Crystal Reports – A Crystal Clear guide on how to get Support!
Read below to find out how to get support for your Crystal Solutions products, whether you have a support/maintenance agreement or not!
How can I check if I have a Support Agreement/S-User?
If you did not receive e-mail confirmation of an S-User and want to know if your company has a maintenance agreement with us, contact your internal IT / procurement to confirm a customer (ERP) number. The invoice you receive from SAP will contain the Customer Number. If you can’t confirm this information, contact the CIC (Customer Interaction Center) and we’ll be happy to check. Please be aware that some security questions will be asked to verify additional information.
I have an S-user ID and Maintenance Agreement. How can I get Support?
If you have an S-User ID as proof of purchase of your Crystal Solutions product directly with SAP (SAP.com or the SAP Store) or as part of your company’s existing maintenance agreement with SAP, then you will be able to log in and access the below:
SAP Crystal Reports resources on the SAP Support Portal
