* Beginning on the Sustaining Support date, the following support services continue to be available to customers on active maintenance:

  • Unlimited number of support request submissions through the Customer Portal, Customer Self Service App or traditional channels (i.e. telephone, email)
  • Access to documentation online
  • Access to technical articles and discussion forums in the Customer Portal
  • Access to technical webinars and events
  • Access to Global Service offerings (additional charge)

When a product is under Sustaining Maintenance, the core development team is redirected to other work and no new service packs or patches are released for general use. Product defects and enhancement requests may still be reported, but work by the core development team on these issues will be discontinued (but may be patched in later versions of products, if a later version exists). Migration to a Current Maintenance version may be required.
