CyberArk offers our customers the option to purchase 24/7 Support coverage. This entitles the customer to call our after hours Support hotline for Critical or Serious System down issues where no work can be completed in a Production environment.
If your maintenance contract expires, then all users within your company will lose Technical Community access and no longer be able to directly contact Cyberark Support. All active Support cases will be put on hold until maintenance has been paid. Once maintenance is paid Support assistance will resume.
OPENING A SUPPORT CASE
The Technical Community is constantly monitored with further alerts set up for high priority cases. Furthermore, it provides the best way to document all aspects of each case and thus is the preferable way to contact Support.
In case of urgency, we encourage you to call the Support by phone. (please see above for contact information). Also, please note that all cases open via email are categorized as minor cases.
At times when call volumes are high, and or after hours, Support will utilize an answering service. This is to ensure our customers will always reach a human rather than a recording. When you reach the answering service they will take down some information and forward the information to our Support team. Support will review the information.
CyberArks Enterprise Support provides a debug tool known as CyberArk xRay.
CyberArk xRay collects product logs and configuration files from multiple products in a simple single-step process so you can share the collected data with your partner or CyberArk in a safe and encrypted manner. When sharing with CyberArk, shared data is linked to a case to allow Enterprise Support easy and secure access to the collected data – helping to speed the process to detect the ongoing error.
This tool can be found via the CyberArk Marketplace by searching CyberArk xRay.
CyberArk always considers the level of accessibility customers have to access the resources under the protection of its software. Below find details of CyberArk’s Technical Support service level agreements (SLAs), including business hours and response times.

Opening cases through the Technical Community Case tab is CyberArk’s preferred channel to deliver support assistance. It provides customers the most robust way to manage and handle their support cases. From reviewing its status to reviewing the full history of exchanged communications and more.
AFTER SUBMITTING A CASE
All issues must be escalated through your Technical Account Manager or the Account Executive. In case they are not known to you, please contact Support in order to obtain these details.
Priority of a case is as agreed in the maintenance contract and once set is not editable from the Customer Community end.
If the actual impact on production ﬁts the priority currently set in the case, but there is added urgency due to other reasons, please state these reasons in the case and inform your Technical Account Manager or Account Executive.
If the situation has deteriorated and the current impact on production has changed so that priority must be increased, please state this in the case with details of the change. If the priority needs to be increased to Serious or Critical we recommend calling the Support hotline or opening another case with a higher priority referencing the original.
