OutSystems Support Terms of Use

OutSystems Support is a person-to-person, fast-response support channel staffed with experienced support engineers. This service helps maximize the value OutSystems brings to its customers by preventing and fixing gaps to the value perceived by customers, by working with them on the delivery of their PaaS service, by helping to avoid and minimize the impact of OutSystems software & PaaS misbehaviors in their activities and business goals.

Customers' entitlement to Support is regulated by the Support Terms page available here. For customers with a valid subscription in force before January 1, 2020, the sections on this page replace the matching sections in the main Support Terms page.

Support Severity Levels

OutSystems Support works with Severity Levels based on the impact of a given issue to the business of the customer.  Severity levels of Support Tickets are chosen by the customers upon opening of the ticket and should reflect the business impact of the issue, according to the definition below. OutSystems Support reserves the right to reasonably question customers on the chosen severity level and to downgrade said severity as the support ticket progresses.
