IBM TRIRIGA Support works on addressing problems through a problem ticketing system where each issue is logged as an IBM Service Request (SR) or Problem Management Report (PMR). IBM TRIRIGA Support manages problems reported via this process.
This page has a Support Resources Home section that provides numerous links to some great resources, including a link to our IBM Service Request system where you can open a Service Request (SR). For convenience, the link for creating a Service Request (SR) is here: http
Alternatively, on the IBM TRIRIGA Information and Support Resources page there are also IBM Support phone numbers that can be used to call for support.
Once an SR/PMR is opened, it can be tracked for updates via the SR tool. You may also request an update at any time and this will notify the Support team to follow up with you as soon as possible.
For the most efficient IBM TRIRIGA support experience, a few guidelines should be followed:
Also, it is important to have one problem per SR/PMR because if the problem reported is determined to be a defect, we will create an APAR for it and an APAR also can only cover one distinct problem and we can only create on APAR per SR/PMR. More information about SRs, PMRs, and APARs can be found here: http
Please keep in mind that if all issues are logged as severity 1 issues, this is a misrepresentation, and IBM will be unable to provide adequate timely resolution for truly critical issues for all customers.
Keep in mind that any inside knowledge about your particular problem or environment is good to provide as well because Support deals with a wide variety of issues and test cases and might not be aware of how a particular customer has customized their envi
Finally, try to be prompt and clear in your responses as we communicate during the resolution process. Especially with high priority issues. The quicker you can reply that you have received any updates and let us know your response, the better. Again, due to the large volume of issues coming in, by quickly responding it can ensure that your issue remains at the forefront of the minds of those involved.
