Why choosing the right system and product will help resolve your product issue faster

If you have a technical issue with SAP software and are unable to find a solution by searching the SAP support knowledge base, you can use the step-by-step guided ‘Get Support’ application to report the problem.

The number one thing that will affect the processing time of your support case is selecting the correct system that is affected by the technical issue you want to report. Because everything that we will suggest during the case creation depends on the data derived from the selected system.

Choosing the right system and providing a meaningful description of your issue will enable embedded artificial intelligence (AI) services to

  • Predict and recommend the right product and product function, which are used to categorize your issue, ultimately routing it to the right experts to help you as fast as possible.
  • Propose the most suitable support channel: e.g., Expert Chat, Schedule an Expert, Case, SAP Community, etc.
  • Recommend solutions in real time to resolve the issue yourself.


Here are some tips to help you select the right system and product.

1. System selection: Open ‘System List’– click on tab ‘All’. Use the filtering option ‘Leading Product’ or search for the product name.

Filter on ‘Leading Product’:

Or search for product name:

You can also mark a system as ‘Favorite’, which makes it easier to select next time.

2. Product selection:

Based on the system selected, the system will recommend the product. Alternatively, you can choose from the ‘Product’ list.

Or search with product name or component:

Note: If your issue is not related to a specific product but, for instance, a project that you previously used an application component XX-PROJ* for, select ‘Customer Project-Based Solutions’ in the ‘Product’ field. This allows you to skip the selection of a product function and lets you directly add the component information.

If you want to report an issue for the SAP for Me portal, you can search for product “SAP for Me”


3. Product Function selection

Based on the short issue description and system selection, the system will recommend the right product function.

You can also search for the product function:

Or search with the component:

      Thank you Amanda for this.

      This article helps me with some frustration points on some items I raise.

      One example: I have occasions where I know the component, but struggled to log tickets to this.

      Grateful again for this, I have shared with colleagues also.

      Best Regards, Wallace

      Sorry. even with this tipps and knowing the Component the search does not work for me.


      The struggle to add this attributes has always been painful and it continues an sap me . A least the performace and wrong error messages are a bit reducing ( but only after the  last interface has been shut down)


      How about adding a button to any note to prefill the right data out before choosing the system?
