Customer Support

Kentik's Customer Support team (CS) is dedicated to ensuring that you have all the information and support that you need to get the most value from Kentik. The following topics cover how we work and how to work with us:

Note: For additional information, please contact the customer success manager assigned to your account.


How We Work

Kentik offers customers two ways to request support:

  • Submit ticket via portal: Request support using the Kentik portal's Contact Support form (see Support via the Portal).
  • Contact your CS representative: Contact us via email or phone (see Contact CS).

Requests are generally worked in an order based on two factors:

  • Severity: How seriously does the issue impact operations?
  • Order: When was the issue reported in relation to other issues in the queue.

When making a request:

  • Please provide as much information as possible so that we can respond quickly and in the most impactful way.
  • Please make a separate request for each concern so that we can address each item appropriately and avoid delays.

Support via the Portal

The following topics explain how to request various types of support via the portal:
