There have been many changes to both the LIVEcommunity and the Customer Support Portal (CSP). 

One of the new changes is how you open a new support case inside the CSP.  


NOTE: Please don't forget about searching the LIVEcommunity for any articles or discussions about your issue first. We have lots of great information that may be able to help you solve the issue without having to start a case.


If all else fails, here's some info about pening a case with the new CSP.

You now have two ways to open a case from the new Customer Support Portal (CSP). 

Once inside the CSP,  you will see "Support Cases" on the left side and "Create a Case" near the top of the screen.


After you clicked on one of those options, you will see this:

In the Case Creation window, it will walk you through opening a Support Case with Palo Alto Networks Support.


You will be asked for all of the normal information about Technology, Product/Problem Area, Issue Category, and OS release, but after you enter the case description, you will see Suggested Solutions on the right hand side. This is where we present some good information that may be relevant to the problem for which you are creating a case. If you have already read those articles but you still need to proceed with a case creation, please make sure to enter a correct contact number and select the correct case priority: 

  • Critical = Network down 
  • High = Partial network outage, 
  • Medium = minor or no network impact, 
  • Low = query


Once that is complete, you can "Submit" your Support Case. After your case is open, you will see options to upload any support files such as a "Tech Support" file or anything else that would help resolve the issue.
