It is critical that you use the appropriate priority/impact. Not only for measurement and metrics purposes on our end but also that your ticket be given the correct priority.

Please keep in mind, to open only one issue per ticket.

Support reserves the right to correct a user misentered priority level.

  • Only available for stable CEE or MSE up to 30 months after the first stable release of that version
Significant business impact
  • Checkmk is usable, but major functionality is severely impaired and no acceptable workaround is available
  • The issue is critical to customer's business operations:
    • Critical component returning error / not responding, but the software overall remains operational
    • A degraded Checkmk performance with serious negative business impact
    • Checkmk has service interruptions that can be temporarily resolved by re-starting the service or via workaround
  • Only available for existing production systems of Checkmk
  • Only available for stable CEE or MSE up to 30 months after the first stable release of that version
Limited business impact
  • Checkmk is usable, but non-critical functionality is impaired:
    • time-sensitive issue important to long-term productivity that is not causing an immediate work stoppage

  • Only available for stable CEE or MSE up to 30 months after the first stable release of that version
Minimal business impact
