Dynatrace Support Policy

Last updated: May 25, 2023


Dynatrace offers its customers two tiers of “Support”: Dynatrace ONE (Standard Support), or, if purchased or included, Dynatrace ONE Premium (Premium Support), as further described in this Support Policy.

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 referenced in the section below titled “Standard Support Plan.” Customer agrees to provide Dynatrace with reasonable information and assistance to facilitate performance of Support, including, without limitation, a clear description of the issue, related configuration and log files, and cooperation to reproduce errors.

Self Help Resources

In addition to the Support offering described herein, Dynatrace makes other resources available to Customers seeking guidance in addressing questions. Customers are responsible for evaluating any guidance found through these self-help options before implementing any suggested steps. The self-help options are:

* Information submitted to the Dynatrace Community is publicly available to other community members, so Customer is advised not to submit any confidential or sensitive information. Dynatrace is not responsible for the validity or content of any third-party information displayed through the Dynatrace Community (including advice from other Dynatrace customers or Dynatrace personnel), and the Dynatrace Community is not part of Support as provided by Dynatrace.

Contacting Dynatrace Support

Dynatrace uses a ticketing system to log Incidents, set priorities, handle and measure response times from Dynatrace’s receipt of a Support request for an Incident. As used in this Support Policy:

“Business Day” means a calendar day, excluding weekends, local statutory or Dynatrace corporate holidays.

“Business Hours” means 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM (local time) on Business Days (for Standard Support).

“Documentation” means the then-current technical and non-technical specifications applicable to the Dynatrace Platform contained in the user, system, specification, support, and configuration documentation made generally available to Dynatrace customers.

“Incident” means a failure of the Dynatrace Platform to operate in material compliance with the Documentation

“Workaround” means a configuration change, manual procedure, or other workaround designed to regain intended or previously functioning features and functionality, but that does not provide a fully complete correction.

In the event of an Incident, Dynatrace will respond to associated Support requests in accordance with our Support ticket response times as more fully described below.
