Ivanti Customer Support FAQs

Ivanti offers a range of customer service and support levels to meet your operational requirements. Customers who purchase a maintenance contract also have access to a tiered support programme. The levels of the programme have been carefully designed to ensure that customers can select the level that best fits their needs. You can upgrade at any time.

Support Programmes

What are the Ivanti Support programmes?

Ivanti offers Support and Maintenance for purchase on an annual basis. Support packages provide you a resource who will answer questions regarding installation, standard product configuration and use of your solution. Maintenance entitles you to download and use the most recent versions of the Software you have purchased.

What are the different Support levels?

Ivanti’s Support Services consist of software upgrade protection, support and maintenance, additional assigned support personnel, and professional services.

As you move from Standard to Premium to Enterprise level support you will receive additional benefits, including access to designated Ivanti resources and faster response times.

Contacting Support

How do I connect with Ivanti Support? 

Please visit the Ivanti Customer Success Portal. Here you can submit new cases, check on existing cases, connect directly with us on the phone, as well as access a wealth of information about our products. NOTE: You must register for Ivanti Community before you can submit a support case. 

What are the business hours for Ivanti Support? 

“Business Hours” means the normal business hours, Monday through Friday (excluding Ivanti holidays) in the Ivanti support centre for the region specified below (based on Licensee’s primary office location). A current list of Regional Business hours and contact options is available on the Ivanti Community. 

What are the Ivanti holidays? 

Holidays are days when Ivanti is not open for business. For a list of Ivanti holidays, please refer to the Ivanti Community. On a published holiday, Ivanti Support is available for Severity 1 issues for customers with an eligible 24x7 support programme. 

Incidents

How is an “Incident” classified?

An “Incident” is a single support issue with a Ivanti product and the reasonable effort needed to resolve it. A single support issue cannot be divided into sub-problems regardless of the amount of effort required to resolve the issue. If an issue consists of multiple problems, a separate incident will be required to solve each problem. Ivanti shall determine what constitutes an incident on a case-by-case basis.

What kind of response times can I expect for my incidents?

For a list of expected response times, please view Ivanti’s Support and Maintenance Services Supplemental Terms. 

When can I submit questions and incidents via the Self Service Portal?

Ivanti has a 24/7 “follow-the-sun” Maintenance and support model.  This means that customers may submit issues and questions to Ivanti 24 hours a day, 365 days a year via the Service Portal.*

* Please note – Your maintenance and customer support times may vary from the 24/7 “Follow-the-sun” support model if you are a FedRamp customer or if your business requires in-country local support. 

From the portal, you can: 

  • Submit a Web Case. This will operate the same way it has on our portal previously.  
  • Submit a Callback Request – “Call me as soon as you’re available”: 
    • When you choose this option, your request will be placed in our queue and we’ll connect with you in the order the request was received. The main difference? You don’t have to wait on hold. We’ll call you. 
  • Submit a Callback Request – “Call me now”: 
    • This will ring your phone immediately and place you in queue. This is basically the same way our phones worked before, but now our engineers will have all your information up front, and you won’t have to navigate a phone menu to get to the right team. 

When is phone support available? 

Support via a phone call back is available during Ivanti business hours. Enterprise and Enterprise Plus customers are entitled to 24x7 phone support (for P1 Critical issues only). 

Support for Versions

What versions of software are supported?

To receive support services, customers must be using the current version or a prior version of the Ivanti products still being supported by Ivanti. Ivanti’s currently supported versions and End of Life timelines are specified on the Product End of Life Information on the Ivanti Community. It is your sole responsibility to properly instal each Ivanti update and Ivanti upgrade within the appropriate time limits.

How can I be alerted of new versions and fixes?

Ivanti provides email alerts for issues such as technical updates, patches, utilities, and documents. Follow the directions in the How To: Subscribe to Ivanti Community Group Notifications article to set up your notification alerts. Ivanti is not liable for any failure of customer to receive alerts, including due to failure of e-mail systems or Internet connectivity.
