How to get informed about FSM Cloud availability?
SAP is monitoring FSM Cloud and it’s components 24/7. Whenever an alert or monitoring procedure is triggered, development and operations teams would immediately meet in a situation room and do the necessary steps to mitigate the situation. To keep customers the informed that SAP is aware and working on the unexpected behaviour, notifications are sent towards customers. This applies as well as soon the situation is resolved. SAP would also share the Root Cause Analysis including Preventive Actions at a later point.
Development teams would not only share unexpected behaviours such us Degradations, Unplanned Downtimes and Outages but also Breaking Changes within the User Interfaces or the Business Logic.
It’s crucial that customers S-Users subscribe themselves for Cloud System Notification Subscriptions to receive the communication. Communication is sent via email to the registered S-Users.
The calculated availability per FSM Tenant can be seen in Cloud Availability Center.
Ask a question
To receive answers from experienced Application Owners and Users it is recommended to ask questions in the FSM Community.
For questions where customer specific and deep knowledge of business processes is required it is suggested to appoint an experienced Partner or Consultant.
