Advanced Team for Critical Issues L1/L2

All Priority Support customer requests are routed directly to experienced Priority Support engineers from the minute the ticket is created during the business week (24x5). This eliminates time normally required in Select support for the initial bounce, basic triage steps, environment questions, and internal escalation processes to get up to a more senior individual. In addition, the Priority Support engineers have large-scale experience and advanced training beyond the standard support teams to better and more quickly service your more complex and critical needs. During local holidays and weekends when the Priority Support team is not available, Priority Support customer requests are handled by the Select support team providing for weekend and holiday coverage that is not available to Select customers.

Screen Shares & Conference Calls

Our team utilizes phone calls, screen shares, and team sync meetings to solve issues faster by ensuring precious time and context is not lost when critical issues arise.

Account On-boarding & Familiarity

Upon purchasing Priority Support, the Priority Support team will conduct an on-boarding process whereby we:

  • On-boarding email - This email will detail the Priority Support offering, our SLAs, priority definitions and examples, best practices, and initial environment recommendations to expedite future support requests.
  • Review Existing Issues - Understand existing challenges, prioritize current support cases, and begin to craft an account strategy to improve stability, performance, and support interactions between teams.  During this time our team will also transfer existing L1/L2 support cases over to Priority Support.
  • Review Phone Procedures - Publish regional phone numbers that can be used to contact the Priority Support team for L1 critical issues.  The call will automatically route to the Priority Support team in the online office in one of the other worldwide regions if the call is made after business hours in your local region.

Global Warm Handoffs for Critical Issues

To maintain urgency and efficiency when critical issues are transitioned between global offices the Priority Support team performs warm handoffs during the business week between our offices.  The warm handoff process creates overlap between regional teams handling a customer's issues. The process and workflows ensure that the new team taking over the issue has time to review past findings and next actions before the initial team goes offline. This same warm handoff process is followed when transitioning critical issues to the team that covers weekends.

Coverage and Service Level

Mission-Critical Coverage

Priority Support is a quick response team that aims to resolve your high priority issues in the fastest time possible. We're here to help you keep your Atlassian mission-critical applications up and running so your teams can go out there and save the world (or all the other amazing things you are doing). We are a team of senior support engineers spread throughout the globe, eager to provide the assistance and guidance you need. With Priority Support, all production impacting L1 issues will be handled 24/7, and all production impacting L2 issues will be handled 24 hours a day during weekdays. All other issues will be handled 9-to-5 in region. 

Weekend & Phone Support Coverage

Weekend & Phone support is available for your most critical L1 issues. Select Support engineers are online over the weekend to ensure coverage whenever your business requires it. Weekends start from 5pm US Pacific timezone (UTC-8 & UTC-7 DST) until Monday 10am Australian Eastern timezone (UTC+10 & UTC+11 DST). Our ability to leverage worldwide offices allows us to shorten weekend hours from 64 hours down to 48 hours, at which time Priority Support resources are back online and ready to serve.
