IBM Support provides assistance with product defects, technical notes, FAQs, and helps users resolve problems with the product. This article walks customers through the process of signing up for important support information from the QRadar Support team


My Notifications is an active email, or RSS feed, for customers to keep up to date on new and important technical support content regarding IBM products. IBM My Notifications is a critical outlet of information for Support to notify users of issues. Content from IBM My Notifications can include APARs (reported problems), technical notes, event information, flash notices, security bulletins, and more.
