Frequently Asked Questions

How fast will I get support?

We strive to resolve issues as quickly as possible and our response times depend upon two factors:

  • The issue priority level (P1, P2, or P3)
  • Your subscription level

The priority level descriptions are outlined as follows:

Priority Definition
P1 Sugar (production instance only) is completely down or system-critical functions are inaccessible to users
P2 Sugar is generally up and functioning but one or more items are not working as expected
P3 Non-critical issues or general questions about the application

What is a "Business Hour?"

A Business Hour is determined by the physical location of your organization. You have access to Business Hours during the following timeframes:

Region Time Zone Business Hours
AMER US Eastern 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM, Monday - Friday
EMEA Central European 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM, Monday - Friday
APAC Australian Eastern 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM, Monday - Friday

I have Premium Support. How do Premium Business Hours work?

Just like Business Hours, Premium Business Hours are determined by the physical location of your organization. Unlike normal Business Hours, Premium Business Hours provide you with access to all three Sugar support centers so you can have uninterrupted support during the week. You have access to Premium Business Hours during the following timeframes:

Region  Time Zone  Business Hours 
AMER  US Eastern  Sunday 5:00 PM – Friday 9:00 PM 
EMEA  Central European  Sunday 11:00 PM – Saturday 3:00 AM 
APAC  Australian Eastern  Monday 9:00 AM – Saturday 1:00 PM 

Can I change the region I currently get my Business Hour support?

Yes, Standard and Enhanced Support customers may request to switch their base region of support. This is especially helpful when customers have teams that need to interact with Sugar support staff in a region that is different from their company headquarters. Except for Premium Support, customers will receive support from only one region.

Will I get support even on a holiday?

Sugar Support operates at reduced capacity during observed holidays. While customers may experience a slight delay in standard SLA times, Sugar Support teams will continue to respond as quickly as possible to P1 support cases.
