Best practices for support request submissions

The following are the best practices for submitting support requests in the Cloud UI or the Astronomer support portal:

Always indicate priority

To help Astronomer support respond effectively to your support request, it's important that you correctly identify the severity of your issue. The following are the categories that Astronomer uses to determine the severity of your support request:

P1: Critical impact, service is unusable in production.

Examples:

  • Your tasks are not running and restarting them didn't fix the issue.
  • Astronomer is experiencing an incident or downtime that is affecting your data pipelines in production.

P2: High impact. Ability to use Astro is severely impaired but does not affect critical pipelines in production.

Examples:

  • The Airflow UI is unavailable.
  • You are unable to deploy code to your Deployment, but existing DAGs and tasks are running as expected.
  • Task logs are missing in the Airflow UI.

P3: Medium impact. Service is partially impaired.

Examples:

  • There is a bug in the Software UI.
  • Astro CLI usage is impaired (for example, there are incompatibility errors between installed packages).
  • There is an Airflow issue that has a code-based solution.
  • You received a log alert on Astronomer.

P4: Low impact. Astro is fully usable but you have a question for our team.

Examples:

  • There are package incompatibilities caused by a specific, complex use case.
  • You have questions about best practices for an action in Airflow or on Astro.
  • You have a feature request related to Astro or Airflow.

Be as descriptive as possible

The more information you can provide about the issue you're experiencing, the quicker Astronomer support can start the troubleshooting and resolution process. When submitting a support request, include the following information:

  • Have you made any recent changes to your Deployment or running DAGs?
  • What solutions have you already tried?
  • Is this a problem in more than one Deployment?

Include logs or code snippets

If you've already copied task logs or Airflow component logs, send them as a part of your request. The more context you can provide, the better.

Submit a support request on the Astronomer support portal

Astronomer recommends that you submit support requests in the Cloud UI. If you can't access the Cloud UI, you can submit support requests on the Astronomer support portal.

If you're new to Astronomer, you'll need to create an account on the Astronomer support portal to submit a support request. Astronomer recommends that you use the same email address that you use to access Astro for your account. If you're working with a team and want to view support tickets created by other team members, use your work email or the domain you share with other team members for your account (for example, @astronomer.io). If your team uses more than one email domain (for example, @astronomer.io), contact Astronomer and ask to have the additional domains added to your organization.

If you're an existing customer, sign in to the Astronomer support portal and create a new support request.
