Dynatrace Support Policy

Last updated: January 4, 2024


Dynatrace offers its customers (referred to herein as “Customer” or “you”) two tiers of “Support”: Dynatrace Standard Support, or Dynatrace Enterprise Support.

Our Support organization comprises a team of individuals who work together to provide dependable and timely resolution to your inquiries. For complex problems, our support team has access to the experts in our product development teams. Therefore, you have access to the right level of our expertise when you need it.

Requests for Support may be made through any of the channels described herein. By requesting Support, you agree to provide Dynatrace with reasonable information and assistance to facilitate performance of Support, including, without limitation, a clear description of the issue, related files and artifacts to assist with troubleshooting, cooperation to reproduce errors, and engage our team consistent with the Positive Environment described below.
